Settembrino - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

My Sicily, with the complicity of your Virtues, what have I done?
 An old Greek myth tells the story of three nymphs that, wandering in the most fertile places of the world, picked in every places a bit of ground and small rocks: under the clearest sky, they stopped and launched from three different parts of Mediterranean what they had collected and even flowers and fruits hidden in their veils. They started to dance joyfully and with so grace that suddenly from the sea emerged a new island, colorful and scented, full of all the virtues of Mother Nature: Sicily was born!
Sicily is a present from God in a moment of supreme joy…
For its prosperity and fertility, the perfect climate and the richness of flora and fauna, Sicily is like a shining diamond in the heart of the sea created to make us happy and grateful.


 With complicity of these virtues, I created for you something truly special: Extra Virgin Olive Oil Settembrino. This oil had a supreme essence and an intense fragrance, lightly spicy. It’s the result of an harvest process which I named “Audacious” because is started in September, a month before the usual.
Only in Sicily all this can be well done and in full respect of our olive trees. The same respect that Luigi Pirandello, a Sicilian writer who won the Nobel Prize in 1934, had for the olive trees of his birthplaces and to which he dedicated this poem:

“Quante cose saprai, tu che non cedi,
da trecento e più anni, o fosco olivo,
dei venti all'urto, e qui ferrigno in piedi,
ti stai su questo solitario clivo...
Ma forse è ver che il vento fuggitivo
nuove ti reca, o che tu gliene chiedi?
Nulla sai, nulla pensi, nulla vedi;
e sei solo per questo ancora vivo
Che se nel tronco tuo scabro e stravolto
queste piaghe del tempo fosser occhi
e tu fossi nei rami cervelluto
ripensando che vivere è da sciocchi
e che a morire si profitta molto,
non saresti trecento anni vissuto”
