Oil Dop

The town of Sorrento, by using in the best possible way, some of its excellent products, has started, this year, a new production: that of the Extra-virgin olive DOP oil achieved thanks to the use of olives coming from the splendid Land of “Regina Giovanna”. One of the peculiarities characterizing the unusual innovation is the fact that it has been the Municipality of Sorrento to promote the production of this oil, named “Regina Giovanna”.
 It is a novelty which has aroused much sensation, because the local public board has engaged itself in a field in which only private producers are usually involved. The event is made even more particular by other aspects, too. The Municipality of the most famous town in Sorrento Coast, in fact, in order to make this excellent product, has used the olives coming form a land of town property, thus showing it is not only to be considered as one of the most precious historical and landscape resources present in the area, but also as a deposit of natural products of very high quality. The whole in the full respect of strict characteristics distinguishing the DOP productions and of absolutely original scientific researches.
At first, in fact, Architect Santamaria’ s studies have been examined; he has managed to show how some lands are rich in energy able to ensure very high quality standards.
Among these, also those of the town land where the very old olive grove is whose production was started again by the Company Innovation and Tradition in the archaeological site of Regina Giovanna.
 To confirm both the reliability of the researches made and of the just started production, the first official rewards have been given to it. In the beginning the extra-virgin olive oil “Regina Giovanna” convinced the experts of the sector who thought it to be worthy of a high position as to the Prize “Sirena D’Oro” (almost all of the best DOP productions in Italy join), and worthy of being classified in the third absolute place.
In this way, the typical local product of Sorrento, confirming the goodness of the fruits of its nature, has joined the best national products, thus showing that they can not only distinguish themselves for their quality, but they can also assure wellness and positive emotions.
