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. It is an olive with a crunchy pulp that preserves the fragrance and scents of the earth on which it is born intact, making it sweet, delicate and full-bodied.
