SINCE 2003, WE HAVE BEEN DEDICATED TO CULTIVATE THE ABANDONED CAMPAIGNS OF BUCCHERI, TRANSFORMING LOCAL OLIVE OIL, AN EXPRESSION OF SICILIAN CULINARY TRADITION, INTO A HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCT.
In the families of Buccheri, the production of oil and olives is a centuries-old tradition that has been passed down over generations. However, in recent decades, due to industrialization and urbanization, most of the olive groves in our area have been abandoned.
Therefore, our mission has been to preserve and enhance the environment and Buccheri’s countryside through a traditional and organic farming approach. We look after each individual tree, observing every stage of the process, from soil care and milling, to storage and bottling of our oil, to ensure the highest quality possible.
Buccheri, with its 820 meters of altitude, is the highest municipality of the Iblei Mountains. Right here, on our steep and terraced land, miles away from industrialized world, the olive tree symbolizes an ancient culture, especially for the Tonda Iblea cultivar, which finds its ideal habitat here.
This native variety of our region, challenging to cultivate, produces an extraordinarily fruity oil with hints of green tomato, freshly mown grass, white apple, basil, mint and parsley. On the palate, it stands out for its character with notes of lettuce, fresh fava beans and celery, accompanied by a strong, bitter, and spicy flavour.
