2018 was a complex year for olive trees as the climate was challenging and did not follow normal patterns. After a warm and rainy winter, April began with low temperatures (down to -4ºC) and snow. Damage was limited at Capezzana, where only a few branches dried out due to the temperature. The rest of spring was rainy, supplying good water reserves. The rain stopped at the beginning of May, when there was a period of sunshine and fresh wind. This, along with more rain at the beginning of June, encouraged a good fruit set and by the end of June the olives were already set and well developed.
This olive oil has a very intense green colour and very fruity aromas of freshly cut grass and artichokes. On the palate, it is dense and viscous, with flavours that match the aromas on the nose, a very long finish with a touch of spice. A very elegant and harmonious olive oil.
