According to regional custom, each olive is carefully sourced crushed individually with a large, heavy stone, a method that enhances the texture and facilitates the absorption of flavors.

After being crushed, the pounded olives are mixed with a rich, aromatic dressing that includes extra virgin olive oil, fennel seeds, chili peppers and garlic. This mixture not only preserves the olives but enriches them with a robust and slightly spicy flavour, characterized by sweet and sour notes and a delicately spicy aftertaste.
