A strong bond connects the Asciano family to this land. It is a 50 years lasting tradition that brings genuineness and simplicity to our tables. The oil cultivation undergoes a production cycle characterized by the only essential natural landmarks to reach the complete maturation.
The so-called ‘yellow gold’ undergoes only few steps in order to maintain its organic essence, keeping out any agricultural chemicals.
This is the way in which the olive oil is produced in the Masseria Agriturismo Asciano, located in Ostuni, Apulia.
This amazing land stretches along 70 hectares between the Adriatic sea breezy coast (only 5 km away) and the windy hill of the magnificent Ostuni, also called the White City (only 4 km away).
Our olive oil is grinded according to the tradition and using the latest generation machineries.
This oil shows all its characteristics through guided tastings. It is an olive oil touched by the sunbeams that weave together with the majestic trunks of the trees, also called “The Giants of the Mediterranean Sea”.
It is a land that speaks for itself and that the Asciano family’s love for this land has treasured it, cultivating and caring every single olive, without wasting anything, not even the scraps of the olive oil production (such as the olive nuts, used as fuel to produce energy).
The precious nutritional properties of the Asciano olive oil is also important for its sensorial and organoleptic characteristics that help in the prevention of the lipoproteins oxidations and free radicals. Moreover, positive biomedical effects have been demonstrated also for the cardiovascular cycle.
It is for all these reasons that the Asciano oil is a fundamental element in the Mediterranean Diet.
