Extravirgin Olive Oil from Southern Latium
A company in Sonnino with terraces and heroic cultivation, Villa Pontina, and one in Alatri, which has managed to bring its production to an international dimension. Different methods, a common denominator: high quality.
In the southeastern area of the province of Latina, in the district of Sonnino, we find the company Villa Pontina, where the size is small and everything has the rhythms of heroic olive growing. Owned by the Pontecorvi family for four generations, the company is placed on the rocky and steep hills of the Ausoni Mountains overlooking the plain of Agro Pontino ranging with the eye from the promontory of Circeo to the Pontine islands.
Today the estate, always used as an olive grove and reclaimed in the 50s of the last century with the construction of terraces with dry stone walls, includes 1,500 trees of the variety Itrana, cultivated on 5 hectares of specialized surface, with organic and biodynamic certification of Demeter Italy.
We now move to the province of Frosinone, to Alatri, in the heart of Ciociaria district. We are much further north than Sonnino and from here you can't see the sea. The cultivated olive cultivar, however, is always the itrana. Americo Quattrociocchi flies high, demonstrating the ability to combine passion and precision with an acute entrepreneurial ability. Born into a family of olive growers since 1888, Americo has transformed his Ciociaria-based structure into a leading international reality.
The estate includes 110 hectares, 25 thousand trees and a modern oil mill. The three organically grown extra virgin olive oils are excellent: the Moraiolo and the two Olivastro, Yellow Label and Black Label.
