Il Censo

Company HistoryProductsOrderGalleryInsights
As part of reconstruction of the land around Il Censo, the Gargano family has begun harvesting olives from an ancient grove adjacent to the property, in a site called Chirullo. The olive grove counts just 100 trees, which are planted to three indigenous Sicilian varieties: Biancolilla, Cerasuola and Murtiddara. The 100 trees yield just 500 liters of oil, and we are fortunate to have 250 bottles (750ml format) to include with the release of the wines this year. The grove is certified organic, the pressing is completed via a gentle pneumatic process, and the oil is bottled raw and unfiltered.
