Affiorato, that literally means " what comes to the surface ", takes its name from an old manufacturing process used in Italy. The oil being lighter than water, it " showed " on the surface and the nectar obtained had the specifity of being fresh and delicate.
To produce this intense nectar for Oliviers&Co, Massimiliano Geraci, a long-standing partner, has set up an exceptional selection method. The most beautiful parcels of olive trees are carefully selected and then only the healthiest and greenest Nocellara del Belice olives are crushed immediately after harvesting. As a result of the summer dry periods, this year 7 to 8 kg of olives per liter were needed to produce this great, creamy vintage.
Harvested and pressed in very short time, Affiorato is immediately transported to France to be bottled in Provence in order to arrive on festive tables as soon as possible.
