100% Coratina cultivar olives of organic origin
Its name clearly indicates its origin in the town of Corato. For years, the Coratina olive was the main ingredient of 'blending', i.e. the technique of blending different flavours and fragrances to create the perfect oil, capable of giving consistency and resistance to the most fragile and light oils, due to the bitter and spicy taste of its oil. Today, however, it can rightly be considered the highest expression of the land of Apulia.
