The company covers an area of 15 hectares, dedicated to the cultivation of the Taggiasca (or Cailletier) olive variety in the territory of Gazzelli, Imperia, in Italy’s Liguria region, at an altitude that ranges from 200 to 500 meters. The area has a long tradition in the production of Taggiasca olives, variety known all over the world for its organoleptic characteristics and for its exceptional versatility in the kitchen.
The production cycle is carried out entirely on the farm, from cultivation to processing. In fact, the company boasts its own oil mill, processing laboratory and olive processing plant – among the most modern in Liguria. The company is very attentive to environmental aspects, with renewable energy sources and production systems that help bring the environmental impact to zero.
Pitted Taggiasca olives are full of flavor, soft but crunchy, with a distinctive mildly bitter taste. After being harvested and carefully selected, the olives are washed, de-stemmed and calibrated, and then added to the brine consisting only of water and salt. When they are ready, they are pitted and covered with extra virgin olive oil. Pitted olives are very easy to use: they can be added to the classic tomato salad, used to flavor meat sauces and roasts, added to decorate and add flavor to omelettes and are the perfect finishing touch for all types of bruschettas.
The Belmonte company has been operating in the olive sector since 1905. In 1996, Antonio took over the company and in 2011, together with Ester, Terre Taggiasche was founded: a process of agronomic as well as technological renewal thus began. Today, the entire production cycle – from cultivation to processing – is carried out on the farm.
