The Extra Virgin Olive Oil, l'Olio di Zagarise ®, originates exclusively from the preSila hills of Catanzaro, by cultivars of the variety "Carolea". A recent research of nanotoxicology has determined that Zagarise has the purest air of Europe! The olive-trees around Zagarise are planted from 400 to 700 metres above sea level, often on the rock, with a Mediterranean climate. An ideal environment that allows the best techniques of treatment and harvest for the olives and the conservation of the olive oil - a high quality product. The quality of an Extra Virgin Olive Oil is in fact the consequence of many factors: the variety of the cultivar, the typology of the land, the climate, the exposure to the sun of the olive-grove, the treatment of the olive-trees, the modalities and times of the harvest, the quality of the transformation, and the ways of conservation. All of these elements are key considerations to the Oiland owners.
