Cold extracted Italian extra virgin olive oil from the Olivastra seggianese olive groves of Southern Tuscany. Light, fresh olive fruit aroma with a gorgeous creamy texture, buttery taste and a balanced hint of pepperiness.
From October look out for our limited bottling of NEW HARVEST Lunaio extra virgin olive oil which David makes from the first olives of the season.
Picking of the olives
Traditional smallholder farming still prevails on Monte Amiata. The farmers fertilise with manure and many still hand pick using tall ladders and nets spread on the ground.
Olives ready to send to the mill
Once picked, netted and put into crates, the olives are taken to traditional local mills which still use granite stone wheels to crush the olives.
The final product
This delicate oil from southern Tuscany is delicious on cooked fish, chicken, rice, potatoes and cooked vegetables or salad. Or enjoy as a dip mixed with Seggiano aged balsamic vinegar and sourdough bread.
