Think of a land close to the sea, pampered by the sun, sweet and generous. It is in such a place that Nocellara del Belice was born, in that green strip of land in the province of Trapani, a few kilometers from the sea, where the temples of Selinunte have protected it for more than 2600 years. With a firm and fleshy pulp, which easily detaches from the stone, it is an olive that preserves intact the fragrance and scents of the earth on which it is born, resulting in a sweet, delicate and full-bodied result.
