The oil is deep green in colour with a fresh aroma of olives, artichokes and aromatic herbs. On the palate it already has a good balance between bitter and spicy notes in the finish while maintaining a great freshness.

Produced in: Tuscany, Italy

Fontodi says
Managed by Giovanni Manetti, who has run the property since 1980, the wines and olive oil are as meticulously made as the vineyards, olive groves and cellar are immaculately tended. In addition to the 90 hectares of vineyard on the Fontodi estate, there are a further 10,000 olive trees situated in a variety of different plots, predominantly on marl soils, at altitudes between 400-500 metres above sea level. The trees are planted in polyconical vase formation at a density of 400 plants per hectare.

The olives are picked by hand and carefully pressed on the same day in order to retain the maximum freshness and fragrance of the fruit. Ultra modern, stainless steel continuous presses were used to protect the paste and oil from oxidation. This resulted in fresh, clean oils that will retain their colour and fruitiness for longer.
