SELEZIONE STORICA

Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

SELEZIONE STORICA
Features

Generally a single variety, “Selezione Storica”, our production top selection, may change from one year to the next. Our goal is always select only the best oil produced each year at our experimental mill. Since 2011 we have chosen a selection of Nocellara olives milled at our experimental mill and bottled in our exclusive storic bottle, the replica of the first glass bottle used for the first time in history by Manfredi Barbera Sr. in the early 1900’s. The result is a soft pressing that gives the product a great softness although using very green olives, therefore with a high content of antioxidants. Always faithful to our motto: Tradition and Technology.
