Produced according to the regulations for DOP olive oil from the Sorrentine Peninsula, with an organic protocol that allows for exclusively natural fertilizers and insecticides.

Each member must adhere to this cultivation technique and is responsible for ensuring the quality and integrity of their oil.

The olive harvest takes place over about three weeks, and olives are transported each day to the nearest mill in Massa Lubrense on the Sorrentine Peninsula.

This guarantees an extra-virgin olive oil that is characterized by the unique aromas of the island of Capri. Farmers who have carefully followed the group protocol are able to turn out an olive oil that obtains optimal results from the chemical analysis and test panels of the Naples Chamber of Commerce.
