Olives :100% Nocellara del Belice

The Affiorato, which means "that which has risen to the surface", takes its name from an ancient manufacturing process used in Italy. As the oil is lighter than water, it "floats" to the surface, and the resulting nectar is fresh and delicate.

To produce this nectar for Oliviers&Co, long-standing partner Massimiliano Geraci implemented an exceptional selection method. Only the healthiest, greenest Nocellara del Belice olives are crushed immediately after harvesting. As a result of the summer drought, this year 8 kg of olives per liter were needed to produce this great vintage.

Harvested and pressed in record time, Affiorato is immediately shipped to France to be bottled in Provence, to arrive on festive tables as soon as possible.
