Awarded ex.v. olive oil made by:
Tenuta Lamiotte - MARSALA - SICILY
The story of a family, the love for a dream
It's the end of the XIX century when Totò Lamia, know as "U Lupu", ventures into growing his family's heritage by embracing the enterpreneurial spirit of the Sicilian agricultural golden age. Decades after, Salvatore, in addition to his grandfather's name, inherits his passion for the land. A new historical phase is about to start.
This extra virgin olive oil embodies the love and the efforts of a family that continues to evolve through generations. Being the result of decennial refining, it preserves the flavours and the scents typical of the olive groves of the Tenuta.
The symbol is an expression of its character, a blend between tradition and innovation: two young wolves, the new generation of the family, sheltered by a tree, representing the solidity of the past.
