Domodimonti’s olive groves are spread across the backdrop of Montefiore dell’Aso. They are facing south on clayish soil, rich in minerals with the vicinity of the sea to the east, the protection offered by the mountain chain “Sibillini” to the west, and an altitude of 300 meters above sea level.
Domodimonti’s production of extra virgin olive oil comes exclusively from these hillsides of Le Marche.
The olives are picked by hand before reaching maturation to ensure: freshness, quality, and to maximize the organoleptic characteristics of the olives.
The olives are transported in perforated baskets and are cold pressed within 12 hours of their harvest. This ensures that the olive oil will have intact the existing antioxidant, and a balanced acidity.
The physical and mechanical extraction processes do not alter the olive oil in any way; the olive oil is free of any additives or chemicals. Once harvested, processed and naturally filtered, the olive oil is bottled in dark glass under nitrogen to maintain not only the extra virgin olive oil’s freshness, but it’s extremely important antioxidants.
The result is an extra virgin olive oil that is perfect to enhance without overpowering any food dish, and most importantly, an extra virgin olive oil full of antioxidants, flavor, and health benefits.
Scientific research has proven over the years that extra virgin olive oil helps prevent heart disease, acts as anti-inflammatory, helps controls diabetes, acts as an antioxidant, and most importantly slows ageing. Extra virgin olive oil protects against heart disease due to its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids; it lowers cholesterol LDL other wise known as "bad cholesterol", and it increases levels of HDL, commonly known as "good cholesterol". The regular consumption of extra virgin olive oil also decreases systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Recently, it has been scientifically proven that an anti-inflammatory action of the component oleocanthal, related to the spicy sensation in our extra virgin olive oil, has similar effects on the body as an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. Extra virgin olive oil naturally possesses a rich patrimony of antioxidant substances such as polyphenols, tocopherols, carotenoids, and hydrocarbons. These properties can be transferred to human cell such that they deteriorate at a slower rate which are properties that increase longevity as well as slow the ageing of skin. These autoxidizing properties are found in higher quantities in extra virgin olive oils that derive from olives that are pressed before over maturation.
