DeCarlo Tenuta Torre di Mossa - 100 ml (free sample)
Bitritto, (BA), Italy
The DeCarlo family have been making olive oil since the 17th century. They led the industry with their focus on quality, which had them shift from presses to the centrifuge well ahead of the pack. There are 3 generations involved now. Francesco and Martina, their parents and their children. The children bring their classmates to the groves to see how olive oil is made. A fine example all round.
