Classic Extra Virgin Oilve Oil
傳統特級初榨橄欖油的味道清新帶有草香使其非常適合用作地中海美食。 由於其持久的香氣和独特細膩的味道, 所以也非常適合日常烹飪。
The fresh and grassy perfume of CLASSIC Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes it perfect to be used as basic ingredient of the Mediterranean cuisine; thanks to its long-lasting fragrance and its distinctive delicate taste, this oil is suitable for everyday cooking.
CLASSIC Extra Virgin Olive Oil is recognizable by its grassy perfume and its well-balanced taste. It presents a grassy aroma of medium intensity; on the palate it reveals a harmonious and well-balanced flavour.
除了其感官上特徵, 従營養的角度来看, 特級初榨橄欖油也很突出表現。 抗氧化物（也叫生物酚）的存在使橄欖油成為必不可少的産品, 不僅對橄欖油的味道而且對我們的健康都至関重要。
In addition to its sensory features, extra virgin olive oil stands out also from a nutritional point of view. The presence of antioxidants, the so-called biophenols, makes olive oil an essential product, not only for its taste but also for our health.
一百多年来, 聖塔加公司一直使用“Santagata”和“Frantoio di Portofino”商標以進行優質橄欖油和特級初榨油的貿易。 自1907年成立以来, 企業一直按照歐洲最嚴格的規定並遵守嚴格的質量和安全標準提供高品質的橄欖油。
通過對各種油的研究和分析, 經過年復一年的經験累積, Santagata能夠平衡和協調每款種產品（包括瓶裝或散裝產品）的風味, 並且油的感官特性分析, 能長時間保持橄欖油的質量水平。
For over 100 years the Santagata company has been selecting and trading fine olive and extra virgin oils with the “Santagata” and “Frantoio di Portofino” trademarks. Since its establishment in 1907, the enterprise has been offering high quality olive oils, in accordance with the most restrictive European rules and respecting rigid quality and safety standards.
Through the study and the analysis of a wide variety of oils, year after year Santagata is able to balance and harmonize the flavour notes in every product, whether it is bottled or bulk, and it preserves a high and unaltered quality level over time thanks to the analysis of the organoleptic properties of its oils.
聖塔加従認證供應商購買原材料, 這些供應商是在本地, 國家和歐洲市場上運營的長期合作夥伴。 通過専門的化験測試和専業的品嚐測試, 公司保證其所有産品均具有出色的質量和口味一致性。 公司所有管理層都是合格的ONAOO品嚐師。
對目標市場的深刻理解是基於我們的技術專長, 即對農業生産（生長季節, 受計量學和系統性因素影響的收成）, 客戶需求（風味, 質量和服務)以及經済體系（金融趨勢, 市場波動）的認識。
Santagata purchases raw materials from certified suppliers, which are long-term partners operating on the local, national and European market. The company guarantees excellent quality and taste consistency in all its products thanks to specialized testings, to its technical expertise and to professional tastings. All the company management is a qualified ONAOO taster.
Technical expertise is demonstrated by the deep understanding of the target market, in other words of the agricultural sector of production (the growing seasons, the harvests influenced by metereologic and systemic factors), of customers’needs (flavour, quality and service) and of the economic system of oil (financial trends, market fluctuations).
For the most demanding oil experts, Santagata means “high level and inimitable quality”.
公司通過持續執行審核検檢查来直接験證其供應商的可靠性。 此外, 我們還採用符合有関特級初榨植物油的最嚴格歐洲標準, 以保護公司本身, 並向其客戶提供健康, 純正的産品。 原材料只會従長期業務伙伴和經認證的供應商處購買。 為了獲得公司的批准, 每批油都首先要經過內部小組測試以進行感官分析。 此外, 一定数量的橄欖油被送往公司的實験驗室進行進一步測試, 只有當最終的化學和物理參数達到要求的標準時, 橄欖油才最終従油車上卸下。
The company directly verifies the reliability of its suppliers by permanently performing audit checks. Furthermore, it applies the necessary protections to safeguard the company itself and to offer its customers a healthy and genuine product that complies with the most restrictive European standards concerning extra virgin and vegetable oils. Raw materials are purchased only from the certified suppliers that hold a long-term business relationship with Santagata. In order to be approved by the company, each and every lot of oil is first tested by the internal Panel for a sensory analysis. Furthermore a certain amount of oil is sent to the laboratory of the Consortium the Santagata company is part of for further tests, and only when the resulting chemical and physical parameters meet the required standards the oil is finally unloaded from the tanker truck.
對於每個測試的橄欖油樣本, 要考慮和分析数十個化學和物理參数, 它們分為兩個主要類別, 即質量和純度参数。 進行的細緻研究旨在揭示潛在缺陷及無法用品嚐方式發現複雑性。
For each oil sample tested, there are tens of chemical and physical parameters that are taken into account and analysed, and they fall into two main categories, the quality and the purity parameters. The meticulous research that is carried out aims at revealing potential frauds or sophistications of the product that could not be revealed only through tasting.
Parameters of quality
属於此類別的参数為：酸度水平, 過氧化氫值和UV分光光度常数。 它們共同揭示了橄欖油一次和二次水解和氧化变化的水平。 這些值用於了解原材料的優劣, 其真實性, 並間接地了解橄欖油的“新鮮度”。
The parameters that fall into this category are: acidity level, hydrogen peroxide number and UV spectrophotometric constant. They collectively reveal the level of hydrolytic and oxidizing alteration, both primary and secondary, of oil. These values are used to understand the goodness of the raw material, its authenticity and indirectly the “freshness” of the oil.
Parameters of purity
對甘油餾部分和不可皂化餾部分指示剤的某些成分（例如固醇, 脂肪族和三萜醇, 蠟）進行分析, 可以験證橄欖油成分光譜； 它還可以證明所沒有被渗入的数值較低的橄欖油。
The analysis of both the glyceridic fraction and of some components of the unsaponifiable fraction indicators (such as sterols, aliphatic and triterpenic alcohols, waxes) enables to verify that the analysed product perfectly reflects the concerned vegetable oil spectrum; it also enables to prove that the analysed oil has not been sophisticated with oils of lesser value.
Selection of the finest oils
在進行橄欖榨汁階段前, 就該選擇合適的供應商了。 由經過培訓的合格品油師組成的公司員工圑會去工場, 以選擇高質量的原材料, 又或者, 参與公司內部小組以作測試每天由可信賴的代理帶来的橄欖榨油樣本。 這是一項艱鉅工作, 不僅是要選擇具有最感官特徵的油, 因為合適橄欖油須要在混合後能構成独特香氣, 成為産品線的特色。
When the olive pressing phase approaches, it is time to select the right suppliers. The company staff, which is made up of trained and qualified tasters, visit the mills to select high quality raw materials or, as an alternative, the staff takes part to the company internal panel in order to test the extra virgin oil samples that are shipped daily by trusted brokers. It is a hard work, since it is not simply about selecting the oils with the most promising sensory features, but it also implies to search for the oils that once mixed together – blending – will make up the unique bouquet, which characterises all the Santagata product lines.
原材料的選擇只是質量鏈的起點。 事實上, 橄欖油和石油一樣珍貴, 一旦選擇了最優質的橄欖油, 就必須對往後橄欖油生産鏈給予同樣的関注。
基於以上信念, 聖塔加依靠専業且值得信賴的運輸商在恆溫油車中運送橄欖油, 以避免溫度变化。 此外, 這些車輛是經特別設計以防止過多氣流, 這可能會導致橄欖油氧化。
The selection of raw materials is nothing but the starting point of the quality chain. As a matter of fact, oil is as precious as delicate, and once the finest oil is selected it is necessary to pay just the same attention to the rest of the oil production chain.
For this reason, Santagata relies on specialised and trusted transporters carrying the oil within thermostated tanker trucks to avoid temperature changes; furthermore, these vehicles are featured by compartments designed to limit excessive aeration that could cause oxidation of the oil.
公司業務由喬瓦尼·巴蒂斯塔·桑塔加塔（Giovanni Battista Santagata）於1907年在熱那亞附近的海上小村莊卡莫利（Camogli）創立, 該公司専門従事最佳初榨和特級初榨油貿易。在往後100年, 随後的五代人以同樣的熱情, 奉献精神和專業精神管理著公司。
喬瓦尼·巴蒂斯塔（Giovanni Battista）的児子路易吉（Luigi）拓寬了意大利的業務範圍。 随後, 其孫子和曾孫馬里奧（Mario）和馬西莫·桑塔加塔（Massimo Santagata）分別帶領公司邁向國際市場, 他們将總部遷至Via Albisola的熱那亞市, 該地點可以更好地反映業務規模和公司營業額。
如今, Federico和Cristina（第五代）得到了經験豐富的員工的支持, 他們管理著一家在札根當本地和本國, 並在國際上不断壯大的老牌公司, 継續為客戶提供一流的産品。 在2012年, 公司被列入歷史公司名冊。
The business was started in Camogli – the maritime hamlet near Genoa – in 1907 by Giovanni Battista Santagata, the founder of the enterprise who specialised in the selection and trading of the finest virgin and extra virgin oils. Since then 100 years have passed, and during this period of time the five generations that followed have managed the company with the same passion, dedication and professionalism.
Luigi, the son of Giovanni Battista, has widened the business frontiers in Italy. Subsequently, Mario and Massimo Santagata, the grandson and the great grandson respectively, have opened up the company to international markets and they have moved the headquarters to Genoa city in Via Albisola, a location that better reflects the business size and the company turnover.
Today Federico and Cristina, the fifth generation of a long-established family tradition are supported by an experienced staff and they continue to provide their customers with first quality products by managing a well-established company with a strong local and national rooting and with growing international ramifications. In 2012 the company was included in the Historic Company Register.
