The Fratepietro family business was founded in 1890 by Giovanni Fratepietro, and today is run by Giovanni’s great-grandson Andrea. He and his father Giovanni oversee the entire production process, ensuring these olives are among the best you can find on the world market. They are perfectly shaped Bella di Cerignola are carefully picked in October at ideal maturity, sorted by size and gently rinsed several times in a soda wash to take away any trace of bitterness. Finally they are soaked in a brine made with local salt from the nearby Margherita di Savoia nature preserve.
