Trecolline -olive oil DOP- Ostuni

“Trecolline”, our DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

“The Hills of Brindisi” (the name of the DOP – protected denominator of origin) is the name of the gentle slopes that rise and fall around Ostuni. These fertile yet sparsely cultivated hills protect our olive groves from the scirocco (the humid winds that arrive from North Africa) whilst the fresh dry sea breezes of the Adriatic keep the trees strong and healthy. The soil is rich in iron and calcium, red upon the white stone and there is no stagnation whatsoever. These are the perfect conditions for secular olive trees, the trees that gift us with the sweetest oil in the world.
Since the DOP regulations allow us to blend a minimum of 70% of the “ogliarola salentina” variety with a maximum of 30% of other varieties, providing of course that they come from the same olive groves, one comes to understand the importance of the secret blend provided by the young trees that we planted only ten years ago: frantoio, pesciolina and others.
Given that the taste, the colour and the fruitiness of this olive oil attains such a supreme balance it is ideal for salads, meat dishes and exceptionally suitable for light frying.
