Lauretana water springs in a pristine and wild ground at more than 1000 metres above sea level, in the North of Piedmont, surrounded by Biella Alps, a natural environment, protected and unpolluted, far from industrial and agricultural sites. It comes from the hydrogeological area of Monte Rosa glacier, that with its 4.600 metres overlooks the border between Italy and Switzerland: the mineral water flows deep, keeping unaltered all its organoleptic qualities and without running any risk of contamination.
This is merit of the bed of the path composed of granite, a crystalline rock of a very ancient geological composition : it filters and protects the mineral water from impurities, it keeps it microbiologically pure and it releases a low percentage of minerals: that is the reason why Lauretana is the lightest water in Europe.
The source springs directly on the surface, it freely flows and it is bottled thanks to the natural gravity, not to alter or destroy its vital molecules.
Nothing to do with the industrial pumping or other massive interventions, as it happens in the case of industrial sources, above all if in the plain , where the ground is drilled and the water collected in underground aquifer, often near industrial sites, dumps or countryside, running the risk of being contaminated by toxic chemical products.
