The story of Maurizio and his oil is also the story of a land and a family heritage. Near Syracuse, Maurizio Marino has been looking after his olive trees since 2004, relying on his family know-how.
The Tonda Iblea and Biancolilla olive trees are grown at an altitude of up to 600 metres. This altitude, together with the privileged climate, is a natural remedy against the "olive fly". On these hills, there is no need for pesticides, which makes the oil completely organic.
