The production process of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil plays a crucial role in its superior quality. Della Terra takes pride in quality and adheres to these practices throughout the process.

1. Organic farming practices: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from olives grown using organic farming methods without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. This helps maintain the purity and quality of the olives.

2. Harvesting at the right time: Olives are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness to ensure maximum flavor and nutritional value. This careful selection of olives contributes to the superior quality of the oil.

3. Cold-press extraction: The olives are immediately cold-pressed after harvesting to extract the oil. This method involves mechanical pressing without the use of heat or chemicals, preserving the natural flavors, aroma, and nutrients of the olives.

4. Limited processing: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil goes through minimal processing to retain its natural qualities. It is not refined or processed with heat or chemicals, which helps maintain the integrity and quality of the oil.

5. Strict quality control: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil undergoes rigorous testing and quality control measures. It must meet specific standards set by certification bodies to be labeled as "extra virgin." These standards ensure that the oil is free from defects and meets strict requirements for acidity, flavor, and aroma.

6. Storage and packaging: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is traditionally stored in dark glass bottles to protect it from light and preserve its freshness. Proper packaging and storage contribute to maintaining the oil's superior quality over time.

Overall, the combination of organic farming practices, careful harvesting, cold-press extraction, limited processing, strict quality control, and proper storage all contribute to the superior quality of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
