Located near the Etruscan town of Blera, and under the strict supervision of agronomist Nicola Fazzi, the Colli Etruschi farm collective uses state-of-the-art equipment to produce the highest quality extra virgin olive oils. Their innovative pressing enhances the quality of the olive oil, including higher antioxidant count and more efficient extraction of pure oil, and the eco-friendliness of its production. A special centrifugation process separates the oil, pits, and a “pâté” component in one step, without any water being added to help extract more oil from the olive pulp. This innovative process not only preserves the oil’s antioxidant content, which would otherwise dissolve in the water and be carried away, but it also eliminates the amount of water consumed and expelled as waste. Colli Etruschi’s press is solar-powered, and the cooperative utilizes only locally grown and harvested Caninese olives. The net result is an exceptional quality oil and a production process with remarkably low environmental impact. RITROVO® is extremely proud to import this special line of extra virgin olive oils.
