The firm Azienda Agricola Il Poggetto di Mezzo ' extravirgin olive-oil
was born thanks to the passion of the founder PierCarlo Rotta for the
production of high quality olive-oil.After a careful search he purchased
an historical olive-grove of some hectare in Caldana of Gavorrano in the
Tuscan Mremma, a place particularly dedicated to the Olive cultivation.

to whom registered the firm , and they bring new energy and
enthusiasm.In the 2008 new hectares of Olive-grove was added to the
historical olive-grove , reaching the number of 750 olive-trees .The
Olive-trees are of sorts Leccino , Frantoi , Moraiolo ,Maurino , and a
fairly good number are age-long: this sorts of olive-trees permit a
PierCarlo particularly takes care the quality of the olive-trees and
wants to produce the extravirgin olive-oil in the most traditional way :
with manual harvesting of the Olives from the Olive-trees ,transporting
in a very short time , within 12 hours the Olives to the oil-mill for
the squeezing in order to respect the typical organolectic and aromatic
properties of the olive-oil.
PierCarlo participates with daughters to the harvesting of the Olives in
order to control all the steps of the processing and to obtain an
high-quality niche product.The quality with no compromises is chosen for
the passion of the founder for the size of the firm Azienda Agricola Il
Poggetto di Mezzo.
