PGI Tuscan Organic Oil

The most Tuscan
My Black label with Gold logo is the chosen one for the PGI crown.
The gang calls me ‘Il Capofamiglia’.

I am strict, superior, regal-looking. I have a strong and determined character. In the kitchen, I am used exclusively raw to enhance meat dishes, tartare or particularly tasty fish dishes.

I smell of artichoke, in the mouth I am bitter on the entry and moderately spicy on the finish. My colour is golden green.

Think of me as the organic Tuscan oil par excellence, an extra virgin olive oil with a fruity market flavour, intense. And with the quality of the PGI mark.

How our IGP Toscano BIO oil is made

In spite of a difficult year – a very hot season – I remain the feisty one. My character comes from my blend: the Frantoio cultivar gives me elegance and robustness, the Moraiolo strength and flavour, the Leccino balance and softness.

I am cold pressed on the same day as the olive harvest, and naturally filtered.

To avoid oxidation, I rest in steel vats with inert argon gas.
