Based in Chiusanico, in western Liguria, Italy, Ranise specializes in olive oils, olives (particularly the Taggiasca olive variety which only grows in this area), and other culinary specialties obtained from natural raw ingredients and free of colorings or preservatives. Ranise has named their exclusive line of products Ascheri 1960.

This area in western Liguria, is characterized by their typical stone walls which for centuries have had the job of holding together the terraces so that the land does not slide down to the sea. Taggiasca Olive trees cover the land around this area. In 1995, the Ranise Family gave new life to the old family mill which dated back to 900 AD! The mill had been abandoned since the 70’s when the family moved to the city. An attempt was made to retrieve a good part of the olive groves, making it possible to start production. Now 8 hectares are entirely cultivated.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP Riviera Ligure Riviera dei Fiori is obtained from cold pressing with their stone mill of select Taggiasca olives. This "monocultivar" is characterized by a sweet smell and sweet elegant notes of almonds. Thanks to its light flavor, DOP Rivera Ligure Riviera dei Fiori is excellent with salad, vegetables and delicate, refined dishes. Drizzle over seafood and regional pastas.
