The Claterna EVOO is obtained just from Ghiacciola, a rare and native cultivar from the Emilia-Romagna region. Claterna is the name of the ancient Roman settlement recently discovered near the resort of Palazzo di Varignana. In fact, the label is based on the Claterna original mosaic. The Ghiacciola olives have been harvested between the last week of October and the first week of November, when they were changing the color from green to light pink.
Palazzo di Varignana is a luxury resort in the Bologna hills, that has 250 acres of olive trees and and other cultivations. The project started in 2017 with the first productions of extra virgin olive oil, fruit juices and fruit jams. The food project is continuing to grow and within four to six years, we'll have around 100,000 liters of EVOO.
