The olive farm of the Fadda-Puligheddu’s Family is located in Oliena between the foothills and hills of Supramonte and the beaches of the Gulf of Orosei.
There are 12 hectares conducted and certified in organic farming. The olive trees are all grafted onto spontaneous olive trees, as per the historical-cultural tradition of the area. There are 3000 grafted plants of “Nera di Oliena” and “Bosana”.
The management of the company takes into account the principles of environmental, ethical and social sustainability. The harvest is done manually with the help of mechanical shakers; the extraction is done in the same day at a convection continuous oil mill. The pressing, grinding and separation phases take place without thermal additions and without adding water.
Lunavera bio “Bosana”. This cultivar is widespread throughout Sardinia, but in many areas of the island is expressed with different characteristics. It’s a rustic plant of low vigor, little alternating but generous every year.
Overall it’s a product with great intensity, complexity, harmony and pleasantness. The combination with meat, soups, soups with seafood cuisine enhances the characteristics of this oil; the strong bitter/spicy component, typical of this Cultivar, has a direct relation with a high quantity of biophenols and supports the use of the product in intense and prolonged cooking.
Lunavera bio “Nera di Oliena”. It is a variety grown exclusively in the countryside of Oliena. The tree has a remarkable vegetative vigor, great resistance to diseases, late in ripening, but consequently the production is strongly alternating. This oil for its characteristics goes very well with all dishes, but for direct experience we highly recommend it in the preparation of desserts and pastry. Also in this product the phenol component is important (higher than 500 ppm) and therefore it can also be recommended for important cooking.
