Natural Rosé Olives

The Tasty of an excellent product on your table

The olives harvested at a more advanced degree of ripeness are washed, deprived of leaves and any damaged fruits, selected by size and finally put into 140-150 kg drums, covered with brine (water and sea salt solution) in which they remain resting for 10-12 months; during this time the slow fermentation process takes place. Once fermentation is complete, the olives are released from the brine and placed in large perforated boxes where they are left for about 2 days: in this way the oxidation and therefore the blackening of the olives takes place, which never reach a full black color, but they remain of a burnished color tending to violet and therefore are called “rosé”. After oxidation they are ready for packaging or for subsequent processing (stoning, slicing, chopping).
