Our extra virgin olive oil derives from organic farming and all the olives are hand picking from more than 900 trees in our propriety. The oil is produced by cold squeezing out of 5 different qualities of olives: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Correggiolo, Leccino and Pendolino. The oil has a pure flavour, without any aftertaste, and it’s perfect for all the kind of food.
The wine of Poggio Piglia presents, in spite of its youth, a sharp flavour and an important bouquet.

It’s perfect to accompany red meats, soups, cheeses and cold cuts.
