| In our little landhouse Miniera, everything gravitates around our "Perle Nere" (black pearls) - tiny little black olives which grow on a limited number of wild olive trees. It's them who give us the inspiration and the enthusiasm to proceed with our project: to transform our Perle Nere in a piece of art.|
Perle Nere Extra Virgin Oil is a carefully selected blend of different olives from wild and abandoned typical Tuscan olive tree varieties, divided into 3 different, each of one is the expression of the ripeness of olives according to the month of harvesting.
“Perle Nere” is not a a variety, it’s the name of my EVOO
Under the name “Perle Nere” goes all olives from varieties I choose to extract my oil from. In order to be considered a “Perla Nera”, the olive trees and olives must meet some specific characteristics: all olive trees I pick my perle nere from are wild or abandoned autochthonous varieties of my area.
