Our Story

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.

PierCarlo conveys hispassion to the daughters Francesca and Alessandra , 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 niche production.

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.
