The oil, the moon and the “calanchi”
Extracted from cold pressing, “Olio dei Calanchi” olive oil is the result of a ritual passed down from generation to generation in Lucania (Basilicata). Each olive drop preserves the flavour of a slow and patient waiting. Its taste comes from the ancestral traditions and its scent recalls the Mediterranean essence.
Frantoio dei Calanchi oil mill is organic certified. With its stone mills, Frantoio dei Calanchi produces several varieties of extra-virgin olive oil, among whom the great Majatica.
Natural reserve of antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols, with their anti-inflammatory properties, extra-virgin olive oil is the fundamental of Mediterranean diet than has been listed to Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Extra-virgin olive oil is rich in monounsaturated acids, very helpful for preventing cardiovascular problems. Moreover, it contains vitamin E, the “beauty vitamin”, that slows down the ageing process and the production of free radicals.
The taste of extra-virgin olive oil from Frantoio dei Calanchi is so fine and enveloping thanks to the persistence of the typical flavours of Mediterranean essences.
