The history of the De Carlo family began in the distant 1600s in the town of Bitritto in the Murgia Barese.
An area historically known for the cultivation of olive trees, mainly the Coratina, Peranzana and Ogliarola varieties.
Today the story continues, thanks to the passion and love for the territory of the new generations.
In the birth process of De Carlo extra virgin olive oil, the first ‘ingredient’ is tradition.
Maintained by the old mill dug in the stone and now renovated and modernised to obtain extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality.
Olives at the right degree of ripeness are harvested exclusively by hand and brought to the mill in a maximum of 12 hours.
Still crushed with the ancient granite millstones, from the resulting paste, the oil is extracted using a continuous cycle plant.
It is thanks to all this that De Carlo has obtained numerous and important awards in the most prestigious national and international competitions.
This variety is typical of the Apulia region, mainly cultivated in the central area of the Barese province, and is mainly harvested by hand.
The Peranzana variety is highly appreciated within the olive oil scene, as the extra virgin oil obtained has a delicate taste, characterised by a very pleasant medium intensity.
