In the exclusive olive grove of the Ranieri company the prevailing variety is the Carolea, strongly representative of our Calabria, precious for its dual attitude. The oil that is extracted is of excellent quality, has a golden yellow color with amber reflections, with a medium fruity flavor, where toasted aromas blend with vegetal notes with slight hints of fruit.
