Description

The Al Torcio oil mill stands for an extra virgin olive oil of the absolute highest quality. The olive oil is produced directly on the Beletic family's property in Novigrad. The olive groves therefore ripen directly in the sea air. The estate was founded by the recently deceased Tranquilino Beletic and is continued by his wife and two sons. The estate has 1,200 olive trees of the Leccino, Bianchera, Muraiolo and various Istrian olive tree varieties. The harvest is carried out entirely by hand. To ensure quality, the harvest is processed on the same day in the in-house olive oil mill. This produces an extra virgin olive oil with a very low number of free fatty acids (0.17-0.23% per variety). Al Torcio receives awards for its oils every year and is a regular guest at Flos Olei and is also recommended in the German gastronomy magazine "Der Feinschmecker" from Hamburg. This confirms that the Beletic family is one of the most renowned olive growers in Croatia. Al Torcio was awarded a sensational 94 points in the Flos Olei 2019. At one of the most important olive oil competitions in New York (NYIOOC), the Itrana and Frantoio varieties were awarded the gold medal. Rosulja was awarded the silver medal. Ingredients: Free fatty acids: 0.08% and thus well below the EU-wide limit of 0.8% for extra virgin olive oils. This top value is only achieved due to the manual harvesting and the careful cold pressing. Peroxide number: 3.2 This indicates the level of preservation of the oil and must not exceed 20 for extra virgin olive oils. Fresh oils always have a value below 10.
