2019 has been defined as a "DISASTROUS YEAR FOR LAKE GARDA\'S OLIVE OIL" – production fell dramatically by no less than 98%.
In order to ensure that our regular customers can continue to find oil of the highest quality, we thought about this oil...
This extra virgin olive oil comes from olives grown near Malcesine on Lake Garda where climate, type of olive, terrain and the wisdom of traditions give us superb and highly appreciated olive oil.
An Italian extra virgin olive oil, it is selected and marketed by Agraria Riva del Garda, in full respect of the quality standards that distinguish it. The label is a tribute to Fortunato Depero, the famous painter from Trentino who was the father of the Futurism movement, and arises from a desire to combine artistic creativity with the regional identity.
A superb extra-virgin olive oil, a pure nectar, produced using just 1% of the total production of the Olive-Growers’ Consortium in Malcesine. This superlative olive oil is made using olives that are picked from centuries-old olive trees growing in the full sun on hilly terraces, and pressed on the very first day of milling.
The extra virgin olive oil produced in the extreme north of Italy, on the 46th parallel, highlights the northernmost region in the world with an olive-growing tradition. The oil marketed with this label fully expresses the characteristics of its “extreme” origins. It is produced with fruit from one of the northernmost olive-growing areas in Europe, located near the 46th parallel – a Mediterranean oasis in the heart of the Alps.
Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil selected and sold by the Riva del Garda Agraria with full respect of the high quality that characterizes this product. The labelling of the oil follows in the tradition of local Trentino artist Depero from Rovereto, the father of futurism in industrial design.
ULIVA is characterized by its excellent quality.
The selection of extra virgin olive oil DOP Garda Trentino is dedicated to chefs, food and wine lovers, experts and lovers of good food and oil tasters, sensitive to the quintessence and uniqueness of products that are closely tied to the country of origin.
WHITE as the universal color of purity. The oil is produced in a dell of the lake exposed to winds, rich in historical olive groves. The olives are harvested early by hand, crushed, preserved and bottled according to the organic protocol. The oleic acid present in extra virgin olive oil is essential and precious for health. Also linoleic and linolenic acids are present in proportions similar to breast milk. This combination results in easy digestibility and protection. It is therefore very suitable for children, debilitated and elderly people, and those who make an organic lifestyle.
The name of this unforgettable white wine connects in part to the name Stravino, one of the typical villages of our mountain valley; more importantly, however, is the word play involved – Stravino means that the wine is something so special that it is “beyond wine, [“-stra means “beyond” in Italian].
