Primuruggiu – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In this case the Taggiasca olive gives us its soul. It’s the olive that transudes oil in a natural way. This step deserves an explanation: olives are ground and the obtained pulp is put into the typical “sportini” hollowed in the middle.
They are stacked and because of their weight, without any pressing, the oil comes out pure and strong. From one hundred kilos of olives we obtain no more then nine kilos of this nectar. This is the reason why we have choose a dialect word, near to the spirit of this area and of this fruit: “Primuruggiu” means “first gush”, first, unique, tasty, precious and rare oil extraction.
