TENUTA CHIARAMONTE OLIVE OIL
EXTRA VIRGIN, EXTRAORDINARY,
FROM ANCIENT SICILIAN
OLIVE OIL CULTURE
The attachment to one’s roots, production rigour and passion that animate Tenuta Chiaramonte are the fruit of the agricultural culture of Sicily and the Hyblean land in particular, which boasts a millenary tradition of olive oil production, started by Greek colonists and later interpreted by the Arabs.
The company, with its extensive olive groves and modern oil mill, is located in the sunny countryside of Ragusa, amidst hills sloping down towards the sea and dry stone walls that have become a World Heritage Site.
