To understand the birth of LUCANGELI, you have to go to Calabria, more precisely to Palmi, a Mediterranean town with inescapable charm located at the tip of the Italian boot opposite Sicily. Today we are very honored to promote our Calabrian lands as well as the authentic work of Calabrian producers. LUCANGELI olive oil presents an irreproachable quality.
It is organic, extra virgin, cold extracted and monovarietal. The authenticity of our product made us want to share with you its unique flavor that will immerse you in the heart of southern Italy.
We tell you more about our manufacturing processes:
1. ARTISANAL PRODUCTION
It is an oil of men, not of machines. This is because making oil is not like making bolts. Good oil needs Love... A Love that machines cannot give.
2. OUR OIL HAS A NATURAL DECANTING
Why not filter it? While there are excellent filtered extra virgin olive oils, filtering, in our opinion, removes everything that makes an oil unique. Filtration deprives the oil of its identity. This makes it anonymous and standard.
3. WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS
Our "Nonni" (grandparents in Italian), passed on all their know-how to us and we prefer to produce few excellent oils, rather than a large mediocre quantity.
4. OUR OLIVES GROW ON HILLS
It is scientifically proven that the best olives grow in the hills. And that's why a large part of our LUCANGELI olive groves grow directly on the hills (between 400 and 700 meters). In the plains you can use cars, on the hills you cannot. So we have to make people work...
5. HARVEST USING VIBRATING COMBS
You should know that the olives can be gently detached from the tree using special combs... Or by beating the tree to make them fall. Comb harvesting further preserves both the olive and the olive tree. And that's actually the harvesting method that we use.
