In 1974, the original Società Agricola Calabrese that had been run by Prof. Giuseppe De Lorenzo since 1951 was renamed Azienda Agricola De Lorenzo & C. It extends over an area of more than 92 ha (227.5 ac) in the olive-producing areas of the Lamezia Terme Valley belonging to the DOP “LAMETIA” designated area.
The soil conditions and the climate make the area an actual ‘olive country,' with particular regard to the Carolea cultivar.
Harvesting begins in October, and it is carried out mechanically or manually. Olives are soon pressed in the in-house advanced mill in order to preserve their peculiarities. The result is a cold-pressed, low-acidity extra virgin olive oil that distinguishes with a smell of freshly-mown grass and taste with very-well balanced pungency and bitterness.
The farm is conveniently located, only 2 km from the exit of the A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria Highway, not far from the Lamezia Terme railway station and international airport.
