Harvested early by the half of October, Casa Julia olives produce an EVO oil with a characteristic bitter and spicy scent, indicating a young oil rich in antioxidants (read: How good is extra virgin olive oil? and “It's bitter and it pinches! I don't like it.”)
The 2022 chemical analyzes show a very low acidity (0.29), a deterioration index which is also very low (4.4) and a good number of polyphenols (169), all parameters common to quality oils (read: How to read the chemical analyzes of EVO oil and Casa Julia Chemical Analysis)
After milling in the mill (this year we turned to Frantoio Franci, one of the best in the area), the oil is stored in stainless steel drums at a temperature of 15-18 degrees to ensure the best conservation.
Filtration is then performed. This operation avoids that the deposited particles, which tend to oxidize over time, modify the original qualities of the oil, ensuring a longer life without loss of quality (read: How to store olive oil) Then the Casa Julia EVO oil is finally bottled.
