Agraria Riva Del Garda | 46th Parallel White Label Organic EVOO
The 46th Parallel White Label Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Won the Award for Best Organic EVOO in the World in 2020!
It is decidedly harmonious and balanced with clear appealing bitter notes and more pronounced spicy notes. It can enhance even the most delicate foods, like salads and fish, without overwhelming the flavor.
This 46th Parallel White Label Extra Virgin Olive Oil is more than 70% Casaliva olives with about 25% Frantoio and 2-3% Leccino. The 46th Parallel marks the northernmost area in the world with an olive growing tradition due to the “lake effect” of Lake Garda.
In 2007, Agraria Riva del Garda began working toward organic production beginning with the oil mill and several olive-grower partners motivated by their own ideas. Frantoio di Riva obtained organic certification in 2008 and the first olive orchards completed the conversion process in 2010. The same year, the first organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil was produced.
Organic olive cultivation is aided by the unique climate conditions that hinder the development of the main olive diseases. In addition, the orchards make widespread use of organic insect control methods like traps for the olive fruit fly, the insect pest that olive growers fear most.
