This product is where a passion for excellence, quality and dedication to our great tradition meet.
INVICTUS extra virgin olive oil is obtained by cold pressing rigorously selected olives from native species. The oil is very characteristic of the Salento Peninsula.
The prized mix of olive varieties creates a superior quality extra virgin olive oil with unique and unmistakable characteristics. Lightness combined with a medium fruity aroma, with hints of freshly-cut grass and an aftertaste of almond and tobacco, with strong connections to traditional Mediterranean cuisine. The combination of these two characteristics produces the unique and striking flavour of INVICTUS OIL. Let's give credit to the climate and the particular conformation of the land, bathed by the sun and skimmed by the constant sea breeze of the Ionian and Adriatic Seas that wraps the age-old olive trees in a warm embrace.
Enjoyed since ancient times, Salento olive oil has in the past been esteemed by illustrious figures such as Cato, Varro, Macrobius and the Templars who, passing along the road that leads to the Orient, extolled the fineness of the oil and its amazing healing qualities.
Today the beneficial properties of olive oil are widely recognized. It is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, and in tocopherols and beta-carotenes which have a significant anticholesteremic and antioxidant role, important in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
