2019/20 disastrous year for Garda Dop

About Us,

We publish the press release which was issued following the difficult year of Garda Dop.

The 2019/20 olive oil campaign in fact recorded a -90 / 95% of production. Our company, unlike many others, still managed to produce and certify Dop. The quantities unfortunately follow the percentages of the whole Garda area.

We support the request for the state of natural disaster of the Garda Dop Oil Consortium

Veronese olives and Garda Dop: a disaster

Confagricoltura speaks of a bad year

Collapse of production up to 80 percent and estimated losses of around 10 million euros. For the Verona area, the 2019 harvest closes with a strongly negative balance due to an adverse weather, which hit the plants in full bloom. After an excellent 2018, crowned by an abundant production (220,000 quintals of olives in Veneto), this year many olive growers will not even put the nets on the ground for harvesting, because the product is very little. “It was cold when it had to be hot and hot when it was cold – underlines Alessandra Di Canossa, vice president of the olive growers sector of Confagricoltura Verona -. The very rainy and cold month of May heavily interfered in the flowering, as the olive blossom is very delicate and needs a good climate to develop. A significant rise in temperature followed from June, which further aggravated the situation. To all this was added the olive fly and finally also the Asian bug ”. Even the Garda area is not saved, although the climate is usually milder

The monocultivar Casaliva signed by Matilde di Canossa

About Us,

The first monocultivar casaliva branded by Marchese di Canossa has born this year.

The extra virgin olive oil Canossa 1077, obtained by the selection of the Fondo Brè estate olives has been enriched with a novelty this year: 100% exclusively  made by Casaliva variety of olives.

As we know, Italy is the country with the greatest amount in terms on numbers of cultivars, ie different varieties of olives. There are more than 530 cultivars in our territory, corresponding to 42% of the world heritage. In order to understand the numbers, just think that in Spain, secondo in then ranking, there are just over 180.

 

There are cultivars that can be found at a national level (as Leccino, Pendolino or Frantorio), or cultivars that express the features of a certain territory therefore are found exclusively in specific geographical areas: this is the case of the Caaliva variety which os a native species of Garda lake.

For this reason, during the October 2016 harvest, Marchese di Canossa wanted to honor its territory with a new extra virgin olive oil: the Canossa 1077. It has been certified Dop Eastern Garda, in order to combine the olive selection with the Dop certification for a guaranteed quality product for the consumer.

Finally, we wanted to make this bottles more and more special thanks to our most historical label, the sifn of Matilde di Canossa.

History, quality and certification: what else?

Extra virgin: pleasure and well-being

About Us,

Yesterday we participated with our Dop Marchese di Canossa  to the event at the headquarters of Confagricoltura – Rome entitled “Olive oil: the pleasure of well-being.” There were about thirty producers and we were able to taste all the excellent extra virgin olive oils of the various Italian regions. There has been talk of the countless varieties of olives in Italy, the need to defend and pass on our heritage and, above all, the extra virgin olive oil characteristics that we often forget as consumers: it is effective in the prevention of arterial disorders and heart, lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood, has an anti-aging function as it is rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene (provitamin a) and antioxidants, such as phenolic compounds. It protects against decalcification and osteoporosis and has an effective preventive action against breast cancer and those of the gastrointestinal tract.

So the important thing is to protect and to know what we eat, and the extra virgin olive oil has the characteristics that increase both the pleasure and our well-being.

You can find it, together with the Fondo Brè label, online and in some quality stores as Mercato del Duomo and Verdi’s.
