Piana, within the Salerno hinterland, along the slope ridges overhanging
a pleasant valley, from centuries the "Fattoie mediterranee"
farm has devoted care, love and professionality to the cultivation of
hectares of olive-groves which overlook the sea from an altitude 400
metres high, situated on stone terraces, in a suggestive scenery where
the trees sprout and take root in the rocks emerging from the ground,
hence derives its name PETRETA.
this enchanting landscape, the "Fattorie Mediterranee" farm
works observing from long time strict rules during the harvesting and
working process of the olives in absolute respect for the environment
and with a firm faithfulness to their own secular agricultural tradition.
Fattorie Mediterranee Farm, even though respecting the tradition, has
been investing money in new technologies, systematically up-dating its
knowledge and its production process, in order to provide a traditional,
genuine but at the same time refined and delicate product, result of a
great love for this work and of the land generosity.
its evolution the farm has always paid great attention to the
preservation of the traditional art of producing oil, although keeping a
firm eye on the new technologies, too. In the 1950s, to replace the
ancient hand presses, a press oil-mill was introduced, which was later
substituted, during the '70s by a continuous cycle system, equipped with
percolating separator (sinolea) which perfectly fulfils the needs of quality and tradition
together with the modernization and cheapness of the production process.
thanks to this enlightened policy, the Fattorie Mediterranee Farm is in
a position to offer you an olive oil which contains in its organoleptic
contents the whole history of the time.
Indeed, the olive tree cultivation in the Picentino Campagna has been
known since ancient times, and throughout the centuries it has had a
constant quality evolution resulting in an extra-virgin olive oil of
great class and excellent quality, produced with the variety of cultivar
Rotondella olives, which predominate in the olive-groves of the area.
Extra-virgin Giffoni Oro is the synthesis of the growth of the Fattorie
Mediterranee Farm that with ability joins, in a perfect symbiosis, the
ancient productive traditions to the technological innovations.
secret of its delicate taste and quality lies in the olive salubrity,
the production procedure rigorously checked, the harvesting method done
exclusively by hand from the trees, and finally in the pressing system
which through accurate mechanical and physical processes grants the
preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of the fruit.
extra-virgin olive oil "Giffoni Oro", with its emerald-green
colour with golden reflections, has a light fruity taste. The excellent
quality and fragrance make it particularly tasteful on vegetables and
fish, on roast meat as well as on "bruschette" or legume soups;
its ancient history and exquisiteness make it especially suitable for a
correct Mediterranean diet.
