Maria extra virgin olive oil

In the name of excellence

It would be too easy to describe this oil as the expression of the highest quality of the Tenuta Masciangelo signature brands, a simplification that would not honor the
sophisticated complexity of a truly extraordinary oil. Everything in the Maria line is driven by excellence: patient hand picking of the olives of our centuries-old trees,
scrupulous selection that eliminates any imperfection, pressing done immediately after harvesting to preserve the richness of aromas, a packaging design that skillfully
mixes references to the past and an innovative vision of the future. The result is an extra virgin olive oil of unsurpassable quality, able to amaze with its perfect
combination of bitter and spicy notes, very low acidity, its aromatic richness and the high number of antioxidants.

The result is a deep emotion

CRUSHING:

Is a very important process, on which the quality of the extra-virgin olive oil depends. Olives must be crushed after the harvesting. In this way, the taste of the olive is preserved. The result of this process is a balanced and harmonious oil, keeping the temperature of the olive paste below 27°C (cold extraction). The pressing must be carried out within 35-40 minutes.
