In further discovery for the finest olive oils, Gattineri admits although his ancestors are from villages in central Italy, the western new world was to be discovered through missionary groups.
The olive trees and the microclimate in parts of California found an unmatched parallel in volcanic soil and mineral to produce some of the finest oils. But as he states it’s not just the temperature fluctuations and long growing seasons to bring the olive buds to optimum pollination, it’s also the water. Water rich in minerals are necessary to create the delicate flavor and bouquet as found in great wines. In the arid climate of coastal Southern California, is born the natural resource deep within the earth and surfaces to assist nature through the gift of Mother Earth!
More to come.
