Mani- Laconia / Koroneiki Variety
Featuring a golden green color, a distinctive aroma and a balanced fruity taste, the unique extra virgin olive oil represents a unique gastronomic experience even for the most demanding palates.

The olive oil of Mani-Laconia is different from other olive oils because of this:
- of the subsoil
- climatic conditions
- of the unique cultivation method applied in Mani-Laconia
Unlike many other crops, we do not use artificial watering, so our olives are called dry. These olives give a valuable and dense olive oil with a sweet taste. This is also because our trees are vigorously pruned twice a year, once during the harvest and once after the spring. By arranging the volume of the branches, we have the effect of keeping the olive trees close, so that their juices run the smallest possible path from the root to the fruit.
Its acidity must be <0.8%.
Again sacrificing quantity for quality, we have the green-oily color, the wonderful, special taste, the aroma and the rich dense texture of our oil, characteristic, really unique and very special
