The year 2015 for the extra virgin olive oil - Interview with Romina Salvadori
published Sunday, September 25, 2016

84_6035656_l.jpg
A 2015 to be framed: ROMINA Salvadori is RADIANT. ALL PARAMETERS ARE CLOSE TO PERFECTION. NOW BEGINS THE HARD WORK OF CRUSHING, MA with lots SATISFACTION
 
2015 for olive oil has had a good performance? I would say yes, so far everything a producer of olives has he hoped occurred. Spring was rainy and the soil has good doses of stored water reserves for the summer heat. The months of July and August were very hot, but mainly bright. The plants did not suffer thanks to the water reserves of the soil and the light brought perfectly ripe olives. The September was milder temperatures especially during the night, so that the maturation has progressed in a balanced manner and aromas have developed to perfection.
 
There have been attacks of olive fruit fly? This year we were able to sleep soundly. The fly does not manifested itself in small quantities, in narrow areas and interventions with natural products have been more than enough to clear the problem. Almost all of the olives is in perfect health, full of flavors and antioxidants such as oleuropein, which, as you know, is a true elixir of life.
 
You still resorted to chemistry? No products of synthesis. We are working to pass under organic and few actions we have carried out with natural products absolutely not harmful.
 
How do you see the harvest in terms of quantity and quality? We expect a good result in the quantity produced but above all we rely on absolute quality excellence. Now is the time of the hard work of the harvest and the pressing of the olives. Hard work, because to get a high quality product we should be quick and timely processing. Run and run! In the morning we collect and immediately proceed with the pressing and by the evening the oil is already in a protected environment in our thermo-conditioned tanks, out of contact with light and oxygen. And since the optimal period of maturation is short, we must be able to work large daily amounts, their energy.
 
So this year be able to meet a greater number of customers. But prices? The amount is expected to be substantial and will enable us to satisfy the huge demand for high quality product. Simultaneously you will not have to significantly increase the price. If there is one thing that our marketing department condemn us we are to have prices still far below what the high quality of our oils could afford.

If you go for a ride in our places there will be difficult to see any of us that, with the commitment and passion as always, takes care of the olive trees. For a decade we moved in the countryside of Bibbona, coloring the land of silvery green of 'olive tree while remaining firmly anchored to our origins in Montescudaio, where among other things still grow many of our olives crushed in the mill family.

The year 2014 for the extra virgin olive oil Romina Salvadori and the company

74_olio_il_cavallino_annata_2014.jpg
A 2014 to throw for the oil? '' Do not generalize '', says Romina Salvadori Il Cavallino Bibbona, '' In some situations and with much expertise you have obtained excellent extra virgin olive oil ''. 

2014 was a difficult year? 
Certainly, not deny it. The climate there has certainly helped. Spring was very warm, with the presence of many of those that are improperly called "bubbles of heat." Already this phenomenon has a negative effect on flowering and fruit formation. Then the summer was very wet, with many hailstorms which fortunately have not touched our area of Tuscany Coast. The weather conditions have also caused abnormal development of the Moscow oil production (Olive fruit fly) that attacks the fruits injecting eggs that hatch after a few days doing the berry rot. 


You have managed to counter the oil fly somehow? 
Certainly. We did not stop for a moment and this resulted in a non-stop work very hard and complex. Fortunately we are devoting much attention to the biological world, and we have long adopted practices to protect the environment. We are looking for a natural balance with the use of non-synthetic products and the intervention of factors contrast to the insect with various systems, including the use of the bats of which favor the acclimatization. 

You still resorted to chemistry? 
Yes, in some phases of attack claimed we made ​​use of mineral products. In the period before the collection we have, however, suspended by using natural products. The rest involved interventions always very timely, ie the period between treatment and harvest it should not provide the slightest delay or mishap. We preferred to resort to an early harvest as possible compared to full maturity, and in some cases even a month, and this in order to preserve to the maximum the vegetable aromas and fruity oil. This unfortunately has affected the yields that were significantly lower, but the quality that was is exceptional. 

How does the crop in terms of quantity and quality? 
We had a significant drop in the quantity produced and unfortunately our customers will sip their consumption. Instead, we are very happy with the quality. It is certainly not a year from primates and among the best, but the products, both monocultivar that the blend, have excellent characteristics of fruity and a good balance between spicy and bitter. This taste is less pronounced than the classic vintages, but for some customers this is indeed a positive characteristic and pleasant. 

Participate in international competitions? 
Our extra virgin olive Holm Horn Special Edition has organoleptic extraordinary. Whereas in other countries of the Mediterranean problems are not missed, we think we can keep at the top of the charts at least for the northern hemisphere. We are preparing in these days shipments of samples and perfecting entries to competitions around the world, from New York to Copenhagen, from Israel to Japan. 

And what about the prices? 
Our extra-virgin have always had a great relationship between quality and price. It is true that the cost of production this year has skyrocketed because of all the care that we had to have to get a high quality product, but we do not want to fall on our customers business choices. We are proud to offer a product definitely territorial, healthy and safe at correct prices and accessible. There are many rumors and even pessimistic disparaging on oil production this year, but we can prove to the origin and health of our oils refers mainly to the absence of pesticide residues. We can offer a high quality product for perfume and taste of all territorial and absolutely healthy.
