Welcome to Po' Petroso Web SITE
Our goal is to provide you with useful
information about our company that we hope makes it easier for you
to do business with us.
Po' Petroso has been serving the community since 1998. We specialize in organic extra virgin olive oil production. We are talking about an artisan product not easy to be found which cost is accessible only to connoisseur.
Our olive orchard spreads on the hills
surrounding Orvieto, at an altitude of approximately 480 meters.
It was set in 1994 with the typical varieties Moraiolo, Leccino, Frantoio, Pendolino e Maurino, in accordance with local DOP regulations.
Having a strong vocation for biological agriculture we never used chemical fertilizers or pesticides; soil fertility is achieved by spreading mill vegetable waters and grinding and crushing in weeds and pruning material. The healthy climate and the soil content and composition confer special flavors to the fruits produced.
Olives used to produce our oil are first
harvested by hand at the proper stage of ripeness and maturity; we
use plastic combs and nets to keep clean the fruit and to avoid
its contact with the ground. The olives are immediately
transferred to the mill. It's important to pick olives at the
right season (we use to do it at the end of October) : the
fruit must be still "green" so the pulp will neither suffer the
noxious process of fermentation nor will take offence of sudden
frosts. Finally it is essential that oil mill uses a traditional
way of cold press.
If these few conditions are respected the acidity rate will be close to absolute zero; the oil will assume an almost dark green color, an intense taste with a characteristic "itching" very appreciated to the true estimators especially when used fresh, uncooked.
