An olive oil obtained by cold pressing the olives deriving from 34 olive trees that grow on a small beach bathed directly by the waters of Trasimeno Lake.
This plot of land is located in the municipality of Magione (PG) and can be identified in the land register at sheet 35 parcel 906 and 907 with a total extension of Ha 01.93.80.
This area is listed as arboreal arable land as in the olden days the mixed olive groves were the normal; this specific condition allows the 34 olive trees to have ample space to develop and, consequently, solar radiance and optimal ventilation that significantly support their phenological phases.
The olive trees are arranged in two rows that optically and physically create a natural avenue that leads from the municipal road to the shore of the Trasimeno.
The 34 olive trees present belong to the following cultivars:
Dolce Agogia = 8 plants
Frantoio = 20 plants
Leccino = 2 plants
Moraiolo = 4 plants

L’estrazione The cold extraction foresees cold temperatures, below 27 ° C at all stages.
The olive oil obtained was filtered to allow greater stability and shelf life; it is stored in stainless steel containers for food use, saturated with nitrogen and at a controlled temperature of 16 ° C +/- 2.
It is bottled in painted and silk-screened glass bottles with a content of 500 ml. This peculiar bottle contributes to optimal conservation thanks to the additional paint shielding from light.
Each bottle was saturated with nitrogen and capped with anti-refill caps.
