Magihouse, Valle dell'inferno


The Magihouse Organic Farm is a jewel hidden among the rolling hills of Cammarata, in central Sicily. Located in the province of Agrigento, the company is located in a small valley known as "Valley of Hell", about 300 meters above sea level.

The name "Hell Valley" reflects the unique microclimatic conditions of the area, characterized by daytime heat and nighttime cold with a delta of around 24 degrees in summer. These thermal fluctuations, accentuated by the evolution of the seasons (with historical records of 44°C and -4°C), enrich the olives with biophenols and aromatic components. The soil, rich in sandstone and derived from blue clays and Numidian flysch dating back 20 million years, further contributes to giving a distinctive flavor to the olives.

The company extends over 5 hectares and hosts a variety of crops: wheat, olive trees, grapes, pears, citrus fruits, tomatoes and other vegetables. The olive grove, which extends over 5000 square metres, includes trees aged between 10 and 300 years and Sicilian olive varieties of particular importance such as Biancolilla, Cerasuola, Moresca, Nocellara del Belice, Nocellara Etnea, Passulunara and Tonda Iblea . The irrigation of the land takes place thanks to the pristine water of the Sicani Mountains, brought through the aqueduct of Lake Fanaco.

The olive harvest takes place by hand at the beginning of October, when the fruits are richest in phenolic compounds. The harvest takes place in the coolest hours and the olives are transferred to the mill within a few hours using small baskets. The oil extraction process occurs through a two-stage continuous cold pressing system. Oil production varies between a minimum of 300 liters and a maximum of 1200 litres. The oil is stored in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature.

Here, in this small Sicilian valley, a high quality extra virgin olive oil is born, with an intense green fruitiness. Its flavor has a medium-high bitterness and a predominant spicy taste, which evokes tomato, artichoke and aromatic herbs. The oil is characterized by a balance and consistency that reveal delicate secondary notes of apple, almond and exotic fruits.

This refined extra virgin olive oil, produced directly on the farm, is the ideal complement to a wide variety of delicious dishes. It will enhance any meal, making it ideal for salads, vegetables, soups, as well as carpaccio and fish and meat tartare.
