Dedicated to grandfather Nello, Nellolio is the tradition of good oil that is renewed.
Nellolio combines the intensity of the olive varieties typical of Abruzzo olive growing, Dritta and Intosso , with the versatile roundness of Leccino . The result is a soft and balanced extra virgin olive oil.
We are in Mutignano, a small hilly village overlooking the Adriatic Sea to the east and the Gran Sasso to the west, here Antonello Garra , a young olive grower, has collected the legacy of the family's olive tradition, bringing a breath of innovation to the artisanal production of extra virgin olive oil: from the early harvest to the rigorously cold extraction techniques, calibrated to enhance the organoleptic and nutritional properties of the extra virgin olive oil.
