Bitto Cheese P.D.O.

Product description

Bitto PDO is a mature semi-hard cheese produced with whole cow’s milk, with the possible addition of raw goat’s milk, no more than a total of 10%.

Production method

The cow’s milk must come from traditional cattle breeds of the production area that are pasture-grazed.
The raw goat’s milk must also come from free range pasture-grazed animals. Both types of milk must be processed within an hour of milking;
the milk is put in traditional copper boilers with the shape of an upside down bell, where it is heated over a medium flame fuelled by wood.
The curd, which is obtained with the use of calf rennet, is cooked at between 48-52°C for around 30 minutes and is broken until the grains are
the size of a rice grain. The mass is placed in the traditional fascere, wooden or plastic molds that give the cheese its curved shape.
The molds possess the indispensable characteristics of breathability and porosity, which are necessary for the salting and ripening process.
Dry salting or brining is used. The minimum period of ripening is 70 days, but the cheese forms can also be left to mature for several years without the organoleptic characteristics or structure altering. In these cases, the cheese is periodically turned, cleaned and rinsed.
Bitto PDO is produced between June 1st and September 30th.

Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil

Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil


Reggio Calabria Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil is the essence extracted from the fruits of the three varieties Feminella, Castagnaro, and Fantastico, belonging to the Citrus bergamia Risso species, commonly known as bergamot.


The production area of Reggio Calabria Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil covers the municipalities located within a range of about 100 km along the Ionian coast of the province of Reggio Calabria, in the Calabria region.


Reggio Calabria Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil is extracted from fruits that possess certain characteristics, such as moderately thin peel adhering to the flesh, smooth and sometimes slightly rough surface, lemon-yellow color; relatively firm pale green-yellow flesh; and a sour and bitter taste. The planting density should not exceed 450 plants per hectare, while the maximum allowable yield of bergamot for the specified varieties is 400 quintals per hectare. Fruit harvesting is done manually. It starts in November and continues until March, specifically when the color of the fruits begins to change from green to yellow. After this process, the fruits are placed in appropriate containers to be transported to processing industries. Oil extraction is carried out using the cold-pressed method. This procedure involves the use of a specific peeling machine that employs only pressurized and nebulized water. Centrifugation is used to separate the extracted oil from the processing water. The oil yield from this production phase should range from 350 to 750 grams per quintal of fruit. The obtained oil is collected in stainless steel containers with a capacity ranging from 1 to 4 tons.


Reggio Calabria Bergamot - PDO Essential Oil presents itself in liquid form. It has a clear appearance, sometimes with solid sediment. The color varies from green to greenish-yellow. The scent, pleasant and fresh, resembles that of the bergamot's pericarp.


The most plausible hypothesis about the origin of the bergamot fruit suggests that it originated from the spontaneous mutation of other species such as bitter orange or lime, occurring at the end of the 17th century in the territory now associated with the current production area, namely the province of Reggio Calabria. However, the success of bergamot essence is attributed to Gian Paolo Feminis, who, after emigrating to Cologne in 1680, created an ointment called "acqua admirabilis." Cologne waters trace their origin back to this ancient essence, as Feminis' heirs patented the product using the name of the German city. Since then, bergamot has remained one of the fundamental essential products in the perfume industry.
