Several generations of family olive-growing experience have contributed to the cultivation of single-variety orchards extending to 60 ha (148 ac) along Maida’s hillsides. Olives belonging to the Carolea variety are cold-pressed within three hours of harvesting at the in-house, automatic continuous-cycle mill with open malaxing vats to obtain a high-quality, biological extra virgin olive oil.

In order to keep abreast of the times, the farm has introduced regular innovations, including the decision to convert to organic farming. Hence, the production of organic oil with unvaried quality properties has been evaluated.

In the 2012 oil campaign, the DOP Lametia organic extra virgin olive oil was certified. The organic extra virgin olive oil obtained from the Costantino organic orchards is processed and bottled in-house, combining passion and expertise into a 100% Italian product.

Based on the idea that living in the countryside can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, the Costantino family has decided to share their house with all those who love nature and are willing to taste Calabrian traditional, healthy food with a modern twist.

podere dippolito logoOriginally set up by great-grandfather Gabriele in the mid-19th century; passed down to later generations, it is currently a women-owned business. The farm extends over about 60 ha (148 ac) in the Nicastro district. Even though olive growing is the farm’s leading activity, they own also a 5 ha (12.5 ac) citrus grove. They apply integrated cultivation methods, which consists in a limited use of pesticides and fertilizers in order to reduce health and environmental risks. The olive orchards include almost 8,000 plants (belonging mostly to the Carolea variety with a small fraction represented by the Frantoio cultivar). Most high-density plants are centuries-old and have been interspersed with rows of younger trees.

Olives are shaker-harvested. Both nets and olives are carried to the mill in drilled cases or bins in order to preserve the juicy drupes.

Olives are cold-pressed within 24 hours of harvesting at the in-house, automatic continuous-cycle mill.

azienda-agricola-de-lorenzo-coIn 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.
