The oil producing Battaglini’s farm in the hills overlooking Lake Bolsena, about 400 m above sea level cultivates the four main olive tree varieties: Moraiolo, Frantoio, Leccino and Canino following methods which respect the natural environment. The olives are harvest by hand at exactly the right stage of ripeness, and cold pressed (max 27°C) within 12 hours. This system preserves the natural substances in the fresh olives and gives Battaglini Extra Virgin Olive Oil the aromatic nuances appreciated in Mediterranean dishes. The oil is fruity, harmonious and round in taste with the perfect combination of the bitterness and pungency of low oleic acidity.
For three generations since Nazzareno Battaglini began in 1935, the family company has dedicated itself to the production of extra virgin olive oil. In the 78 years since the founding, his son Bruno and now grandchildren Andrea (tax consulting and marketing professional olive oil taste) and Stefano (agronomic adviser and crusher technician) have been committed to the pursuit of quality and the best possible results, while respecting traditional and nature.
Since 1998, Frantoio Antica Tuscia has been active in the production, marketing, development, promotion and dissemination products typical to the Tuscia region: sauces, pates, flavoured, oils, spices, balsamic vinegar, condiments, etc..
At the oil mill there are tastings, guided tours for individuals and groups with the aim of introducing people to the world of oil and the products of the Battaglini’s line.
In addition, since 2003 we have produced a line of natural cosmetics made with our organic extra virgin olive oil.
Particular attention is paid to the ecological aspects of production:
- Since 1976, nut residue has been used to produce hot water for the olive mills;
- Waste water has for decades been recycled for agricultural usa, for fertirrigation
- Since 2010, the milling plat has been powered by a photovoltaic system.
Over last years we have gradually changed almost all the machineries of the olive oil mill, increasing the productive capacity of 50%.
