VALLE DI NOTO

Natural oasis of Vendicari

Our company

The Azienda Agricola Alessandra Reppucci is a small family-run farming business, located in Valle di Noto, a small Sicilian area. Here, in the natural oasis of Vendicari, we produce our organic extra virgin olive oil.

We have been taking care of our olive groves since 2011 with passion to offer a unique, made-in-Italy product. Our products are guaranteed by a certified organic cultivation.  It is so important to us to provide our customers with simple and genuine products. Our Brezza di Mare is full of polyphenols, natural antioxidants that help, for instance, reduce cellular aging as they fight free radicals. Our cultivar Moresca is typical of the following areas: Siracusa, Caltanissetta, Enna, Catania and Ragusa.

CULTIVAR MORESCA

The cultivation of this variety is renowned due to its delicate and fruity taste, to its poor alternation and to its excellent relationship between pulp and stone, even if, on the contrary, the produced quantity of oil is not high.
The period of maturation of the olives is premature and the transition from green to black takes place gradually. The harvest takes place during the second week of September in order to obtain the best olfactory perception and the best oil quality, renouncing quantitative production, that would be greater at the right time of harvest, but with quality disadvantages.
The milling of the olives of this cultivar accomplishes the production of anextravirgin olive oil characterized by medium-high fruity intensity, with taste perceptions of green apple, freshly cut grass, green almond and tomato leaf or not too ripe tomato. The degree of bitterness and spiciness of our oil may change according to the degree of ripening of the fruit, even if there is a slight sweet sensation that balances the whole. The acidity level of our oil is very low, less than 0,27%, while the one allowed by Italian law is 0,80%.
The pressing takes place in a mill that uses the method of cold extraction and all the processes follow a technique developed by our master olive oil that aims to achieve the highest quality, to sum up, speeding up all the steps that go from the collection to the final separation of the olives… and some other little secrets. Eventually, the storage takes place in small stainless steel silos inertized with food nitrogen and kept at a temperature of about 16 ° C.
