Characteristics

Cultivar Frantoio

Organic extra virgin olive oil
100% italian

The single variety oils were developed to best express the characteristics and peculiarities of the single cultivars. Cultivar Frantoio is one of the best pressings obtained from olives of the Frantoio variety, a variety typical of our production area.

Pairings

For use on dishes where olive oil is the main ingredient as for example the typical garlic bread “fettunta” and the raw vegetables dip “pinzimonio”, or to be combined with dishes with a strong flavor such as “ribollita” the typical Tuscan soup made of bread, vegetables, beans, and black cabbage, or with “fagioli al fiasco” white beans cooked in a flask.

Sensory characteristics

Medium fruity oil from green olives with hints of artichoke and fresh almond. The taste has bitter and tangy medium notes in equilibrium with each other. Notes of fresh fruit and almond. Green color with yellow veining. Perfect in dishes where olive oil represents a primary ingredient, such as the traditional fettunta (a Tuscan garlic bread) and with raw vegetables in pinzimonio (dipped into oil poured straight from the bottle). Well-suited to dishes with bold flavors, such as Tuscan ribollita (a cannellini bean and vegetable stew) or fagioli al fiasco (cannellini beans cooked directly in a flask).
