CLATERNA

This olive oil is produced using a single olive variety grown in Emilia Romagna, Ghiacciola. The olive trees of this cultivar provide limited production but of high quality; the result is a great oil, able to best express the uniqueness of the territory.

Tasting Notes: The oil has an intense green colour and its bouquet has vegetal and tomato leaf notes. On the palate it denotes a complexity that ranges from aromatic herbs to fresh almonds; the bitterness is well dosed, followed by a decisive spiciness.

Harvest: 2020/2021

Intensity: Robust

Varietal: 100% Ghiacciola

The greatest Italian Olive Oil.

Food Pairings: Recommended raw, particularly suitable for enhancing dishes based on carpaccio and fish tartar, boiled legumes and pinzimonio.

    We started growing olives at the Varignana hills in 2017. Currently, we cultivate 200 acres of olive groves at Palazzo di Varignana. We focus on rescuing and cultivating Emilia-Romagna historical olive cultivars - Ghiacciola, Nostrana di Brisighella and Correggiolo.

    The olive harvest at Palazzo di Varignana takes place slightly earlier than optimal ripening period. This choice, although at the expense of the olive oil yield, allows us to produce olive oils rich in polyphenols which are antioxidants naturally contained in olives. Our olive oils elegantly reflect in their aroma profile characteristics of perfumes and freshness typical of green olives. 
    Most of our olives are mechanically picked (Vargnano and Blend Blu are hand-picked) and pressed at very low temperatures (around 24 C) in a maximum of 12 hours after harvest in order to guarantee perfect ripening and ideal acidity to preserve its aromatic profile and healthy properties.
    In 2018 our olive groves agricultural practices have been converted to organic. We will become organically certified in 2022 when we will conclude the construction of our own mill.

    Why is our EVOO unique?
    Love and respect for the history and our land led us to choose the most representative historical cultivars that are most suited to our climate and territory. Care and attention to detail in each phase of our olive oil production -cultivation to bottling - is our objective and what makes our oil so special.
