Between Vico Equense and the Sorrento Peninsula: how E.V.O. oil is born L’Arcangelo

Immersed in what is considered one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, the Russo family olive groves produce five varieties of E.V.O oil of superior quality every year.

E.V.O. oil l’Arcangelo is the result of the encounter between man and nature in one of the most enchanting scenarios in the gulf. Stretched out in the Tyrrhenian Sea with its rocky bulk, the Sorrentine Peninsula closes the Gulf of Naples and opens up that of Salerno, starting with the Amalfi Coast.

A place that is known all over the world not only for its glamor and for its elegant recent history, but above all for a perfect combination that has been created between man and nature. The cultivated terraces, present throughout the coast, are the most emblematic example of man’s work to cultivate and exploit a geological terrain with miraculous properties.

The presence of the winds that push from the Tyrrhenian Sea and the soil of volcanic origin give the whole of the Peninsula an innate vocation for the production of excellence and quality. The result is in the crops present on all the municipalities of the Peninsula, from those of wine to those of oranges, from Sorrento lemons to the unmistakable olive oil of the Sorrento Peninsula.

Crafts at the service of the earth

The care that man dedicates to agriculture is reciprocated here by nature with a show that is renewed every day. This is why those who work the land here do not call themselves a simple farmer, but an artisan of the land, as they are called to shape and mold it.

In this idyllic setting, the olive groves of the Russo family are no exception and for three generations they have dedicated themselves to the artisanship of oil by producing E.V.O. L’Arcangelo, with six very high profile qualities.

A ritual that has been repeated every year for three generations in the unique scenario of the Sorrento Peninsula.
