The olives were harvested by hand with olive rakes on the second ten days of October 2022.
The olives were processed within eight hours of harvesting in a continuous-cycle mill. The pasta was churned for 30 minutes at 25°C.
Upon arrival at the storage area, the oil was filtered and stored in stainless steel containers in an environment protected from the air.
The 2022 olive crop started earlier due to this year’s anomalous climatic conditions. The summer heat, which lasted until late October, prevented the spread of the much-feared olive fly. Therefore, treatments were unnecessary, and the small fruits were perfectly healthy at the time of harvesting.
