Extra virgin oil from Slovenia

Olive oil is extracted from olives with mechanical processes only. Witin the process of crushing, the olives are processed into olive paste from which oil is extracted with percolation or centrifugation. All phases are carried out with temperature below 27 °C and only addition of water is allowed. Olives must be processed within 48 hours after harvesting.

Oil produced in this way maintains all biologically active substances which increase the stability of the oil and have positive impact on health.

Conservation of olive oil: Oil is kept in dark places at a temperature between 12 to 15 °C, because olive oil is very sensitive to UV light, causing oxidation.

"BOBIČI" (A TYPICAL ISTRIAN MAIZE SOUP)

The period when maize starts to ripen(july,avgust) is also the period of »bobiči«, a typical Istrian soup. There exsist different ways of preparing this soup, the maize grains remaining its basic ingredient, in any case. Nowadays they are available also tinned or frozen, so that the soup can be prepared throughout the whole year. Ingredients: 5 corn-cobs, 400g of fresh beans, 4 medium potatoes, 4 cloves of garlic, 4 stems of parsley, 4 tablespoons of tomato juice or 2 fresh tomatoes peeled, salt, pepper and olive oil Preparation: Put olive oil, chopped garlic and parsley in a large saucepan, saute for a few minutes and add some water and fresh beans. Stir in more water and potatoes, peeled and diced. Cook for some minutes, than add maize grains, tomato juice, salt and peper. Before the maize is done, remove the potatoes,crush them to a paste with a fork and put them back into the saucepan. Cook for 2 to 3 hours. if we opted for »bobići« with a ham bone or smoked pork meat, these should be added at the beginning of cooking.

See nutrition facts information.

Olive oil contains 98-99 % triacylglycerols with high share of very stabel oleic acid (monounsaturated) which works as a protective factor in heart and vascular diseases and is unlike polyunsaturated fatty acids (constituting the majority of the seed oils) less reactive and therefore more durable; and 1-2 % minor components that are not originated from triacylglycerols. Especially minor components upgrade olive oil in a food which has special place in diet and as a protective food.

Among the most important minor components are in fats soluble forms of vitamins A, D, E, K, aromatic compaunds and biophenols (phenols, polyphenols). Olive biophenols are extremely important because they prevent oxidation processes in oil and in human body.

COMPANY PROFILE

The Ronkaldo - Adamič micro farm was founded in 1984. In the mid-90s, we specialized in the production of olives and olive oil. On a 2.5 ha of orchards, we grow 650 olive trees, mostly the indigenous variety Istrska belica, as well as other varieties, namely Maurino, Leccino, Pendolino, Buga, Itrana and Mata, and the local table variety Štorta.

 

We are a certified organic farm. In 2005, our extra virgin olive oil Ronkaldo received a mark of the protected designation of origin (PDO) of the Slovenian Istria.

Due to their quality, our products won a number of high national and international awards, while our extra virgin olive oil is listed in many guides of world's top olive oils.

Since the size of our orchards does not make us one of the biggest producers of olive oil, we strive to be the best.

COMPANY PRODUCTS

The extra virgin olive oil »Ronkaldo« does not come from the old family tradition but from the »love at first sight« for OLEA, the olive tree, which is so beautiful, vital and robust. It comes from love for the olive trees abandoned on the Istrian slopes and overgrown with bramble, from love and passion for the land, from deep respect for the environment and great sensitivity to the beauty of landscape. On the other hand, it is also the result of hard work that has left aside the old habits and ancient sayings and relies on today’s scientific findings, continuous professional training, experiments in the groves, all of this with the desire to achieve the best sensory quality of oil. All of this makes up the »RONKALDO« top quality extra virgin olive oil which boasts the Eurepan tag »Protected Designation of Origin – P.D.O.« and is produced at sustainable, environmentally friendly integrated production of olive fruit.

Istrska belica

The Istrska belica is one the most common varieties of olives in the Slovenian Istria. The oil has the protected designation of origin (the PDO mark). Among all oils, the oil pressed from the Istrska belica is the richest in natural antioxidants.

The oil has fruity smell, with a hint of green grass, tomato and almond. It has a pleasant sweet taste, which is soon replaced by bitterness and a spicy aftertaste. The Istrska belica has a bright green colour.

 

Gold

The oils for the Gold line are made of different typical Istrian olive varieties. In our area, we grow indigenous varieties, such as the Buga, Črnica of Piran, Istrska belica and Štorta. As done traditionally, the olives are harvested by hand and immediately pressed in the mill. These old trees give us the best oil.

The oil is very fruity with tones of grass and a distinctive hint of green almonds, but also with a slight artichoke aroma. The taste is very pleasant and harmonious. It is sweet at the beginning and then develops a balanced bitterness and spiciness. The oil's green colour turns into gold.

 

Cuvée

The oils from the Cuvée line are produced from the careful varietal selection of olives, which are not typical of Istria. These olive trees were brought to our area from different Mediterranean countries. Leccino, Frantoio, Maurino and Ascolana are just some of the many varieties that have arrived to this area in recent decades.

The smell of oil is slightly fruity, with hints of grass and almonds. The taste is harmonious, since the sweetness interlace with bitterness and spiciness. The colour of the oil is green, but changes as well and gets yellow shades.

 

Chili

Chili is spicy oil, which has over time become one of classic flavoured oils. It is made only from the finest ingredients. Only chillies are added to the oil produced from a selection of olives.

This oil is designed for those who like spicy dishes. Despite its spiciness, the oil still predominantly maintains its original taste.

 

Orange

Orange is extra virgin olive oil flavoured with orange. It is made by simultaneously cold pressing selected olives and organic oranges from Sicily. It is not only one of many flavoured oils, but a sophisticated elixir with a unique flavour.

The oil has a sweet, orangey taste and a scent full of citrus aromas. It has a bright green colour.

 

Lemon

Extra virgin olive oil Lemon is made of olives and carefully selected organic lemons from Sicily, by cold pressing both ingredients at the same time. This special product is full of strong aromas and typical Mediterranean flavours.

The oil has a very fresh taste, a citrus scent and an emerald green colour.
