|We are a small family based producer in Croatia.
The Olive Oil is our sole passion, which is why we take exceptional pride in the way we make it. The TERRA ROSSA® Extra Virgin Olive Oils are produced using sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment and techniques combined with the exacting quality standards.|
The Bellani Family currently farms around 2.4 hectares with approximately 1,600 young trees. They produce the Premium TERRA ROSSA® Olive Oil exclusively through 100% organic farming in limited and consecutively numbered bottles each year. TERRA ROSSA® Olive Oil has an intense limpid golden yellow color with warm green hues. Its aroma is ample and definite, rich in fruit notes of lemon, and with fragrant hints of mint and basil. Its taste is rotund and strong, with a flavor of black pepper and almond. Bitterness and pungency is balanced. It is ideal on bruschetta with tomatoes, octopus Carpaccio, marinated fish, soups, salads, and pasta. The olive trees are planted exclusively in the unique terra rossa soils and grow on a south-facing terrace. Optimal all-day sunshine and the fresh sea air ensure the optimal growth of the trees. From the nursing of the trees to the harvest of the olives, everything is done by hand. The harvested olives are cold-pressed the same day already. The olive varieties Istarska Bjelica, Istarska Buza, Pendolino, Frantoio, and Leccino are used for TERRA ROSSA® Olive Oil. The interaction of the terra rossa soil and the individual olive varieties is reflected in the flavor of this unique and strictly limited olive oil. Every drop of oil encapsulates the experience and the passion of the Bellani family, together forming an accomplished and fully organic product of the highest quality.
