Our Extra Virgin Olive Oils are a reflection of our personality, the best expression of our vision and our relationship with the land where we were born and grew up and which taught us everything. We know that a large part of the value of the work we are called upon to do is to minimise the impact of our intervention on the extraordinary quality that nature alone restores. For this reason we have oriented our research to the simple enhancement of its infinite nuances.
Lanzavoj is the full identification between the land and the fruit. We have chosen the ancient name of a plot of our olive groves, which since the dawn of time has signed the Biancolilla plateau. This oil was created to fully express its delicacy, allowing it to be tenderly loved from the very first encounter.
October 1st, the 274th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar, is instead the first in the calendar of those waiting for the olive harvest. It is the first taste, the most delicate. This oil is inspired by the promise of adventure, of travel: it is the certainty of the effort that comes from the earth, but more than anything else of the generosity of time and nature.
The Greek Agathòs is not simply translated as “very good”. For the Greek world “kalos kai agathos” – “beautiful and good” – is the definition of the ideal man; the consummation of bodily perfection that of the spirit. In the same sense, Latin referred to Agathae as the good, the virtuous. This oil is inspired by goodness as an inner virtue par excellence, a delicate balance between strength and harmony.
The river Irminio, which crosses our olive groves, takes its name from the god Hermes, who fell in love with the nymph Daphne here. This oil is a tribute to its valleys, deep and sinuous, rich in vegetation that has evolved through millennia without receiving disturbance by the hand of mankind.
With the awareness that the whole is always more than the sum of the parts, this oil is inspired by the fullness that we experience in our lives through the unitary whole of body and mind, of thought and feeling. The “Sesto” (meaning “the sixth”) is a sensation that is surprisingly more intense than the sum of the five senses: it is the entirety, the absolute perception.
The Incanto (meaning “enchantment”) is the moment that opens emotions. An elective affinity links this oil to a piece by Maestro Franco Polizzi, who interpreted the sharing of his love for the land of Sicily into an image: his brush is imbued with Mediterranean emotions and the lights of the Hyblean countryside. It is the explosion of nature exactly in the enchanted place where this oil is born.
