In a land enriched with hundred-year-old trees and protected as a Slow Food Presidium, the rugged, wild nature of the territory lends a simply unique, recognized, and protected flavor to this organic extra-virgin olive oil.

Blend: Messinese, Biancolilla, and Tondina Olives
Among the sharp meanders of the creeks descending from the peaks of the high Sila plateau grow the olive trees that produce this sweet, fruity extra- virgin oil with soft notes of tomato tempered by the discrete elegance of almond.

The Tabata Company
On a sunny olive grove overlooking the sea, caressed by the salty breeze and subject to the north-easterly "Boreas" wind, where restored ancient dry stone walls blend with modern agronomic techniques. Ginevra has started an innovative family business together with her mother, uncle Roberto and grandparents. Ginevra chose to name the company after her ancestors and decided to steer it towards fully organic and sustainable farming. The challenge she wants to overcome is to create an outstanding EVO oil that exudes the scents and aromas of this land, rich in nature and history, rough and a little wild, but always welcoming and generous.
The Tabatà olive groves are divided into three estates, all located between the Sila and the sea. In the Prato estate, there are 1,800 trees, including cultivars such as Dolce di Rossano, Biancolilla, Tondina, Leccino, Ogliarola Messinese and Carolea.
For maximum quality, harvesting takes place before maturation and ripening, and is done by hand with mechanical aids. The olives are placed in crates and taken to the oil mill, where they are processed within a couple of hours of being picked. The mill is equipped with a chiller for cooling the paste and in-line filtration, and operates in a two-stage continuous cycle. Each batch is processed with customised criteria that follow the latest research in the field, specific to each cultivar.
