Libra extra virgin olive oil

The olive tree is present in all areas bordering the Mediterranean Sea, but not only, Lake Garda has the same mild climate as the Mediterranean and hosts several native olive trees species, the oil production is predominant (90% of the total) in the native growth olive tree zones. The production of extra virgin olive oil begins with the olive harvest, then the cleaning, pressing of the olives and finally various methods of oil extraction. To acquire the exta designation, a virgin olive oil must have a maximum total acidity, induced by free oleic acid, equal to 0.8% and pass the organoleptic control through a test applied and verified by the competent control bodies, in which the fruitiness and bitterish-spicy taste, typical of extra virgin olive oil, is evaluated.
