LE PETRULLE

Torre Grande “Le Petrulle” Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has elegant medium fruity flavour and taste. It’s simply the perfect olive oil to enjoy Coratina variety and Apuliuan flavour for the first-timer.

Le Petrulle

When our grandmother was a child, Torre Grande, currently our home and farm, was also a sheepfold. Torre Grande means literally “big tower” in Italian but it also means big sheepfold.

She used to come here with her parents and remembered this place as “Petrulle”. Why Petrulle? Petrulle means many small pebbles. Since this fold of sheep kept moving the soil, these small pebbles came out to its surface, and hence the name “Le Petrulle”.

Harvest

We take a great care of the soil and olive trees with the best possible natural ways. Before speaking about the quality of olive oil, the most important thing is the soil.

We start harvesting at the end of October. When the harvest gets closer, we start to select trees and olives one by one to see the condition of olives. On the harvest day, we hand-pick carefully so the fruits don’t get damaged and it doesn’t affect the flavour of olive oil.

OIL

We start harvesting at the dawn and within 7 hours, we extract olive oil and filter it at olive oil mills. We extract with the lowest temperature the mill can do to achieve the best quality. After the extraction, it goes through filters right after. Within a half day, Le Petrulle is ready to taste and bottled.
