Out of stock
The Olive known as “Nocellara del Belice”, or alternatively, as the “Castelvetrano Olive”, is a typically Sicilian Olive – as designated by the “Protected Denomination of Origin” (P.D.O.) of the European Union.
These olives are born in the Province of Trapani, in a segment of green farmland between Partanna, Castelvetrano and Campobello di Mazara, with the Trinity lake to the West and the Mediterranean Sea only a few kilometers to the South. A land over which the Temples of Selinunte have stood guard for more than 2600 years.
Here, the Mediterranean’s marine breeze promotes the growth of plants endowed with vigorous growth, which produce robust olives. It is THE Sicilian olive par excellence. According to Charles Quest-Ritson’s book, “Olive Oil”, Sicily is in fact amongst the premier olive producing regions in the world (far surpassing those of Tuscany, if you take into account the ratio between quality and price).
The Nocellara Olive, with its rounded shape and intense green colour, follows the typical traditional Sicilian production, that is to say: all hand-picked. In this way, the quality is never altered. All of these factors contribute to the fact that one bite of a Noceralla Olive is like being transported to another time … back to a more genuine era. To the point that many would describe them as “the best olives in the world”. And why not treat yourself at the end of the day … eating the delicious olives whilst sipping an aperitif.
