Meet our producer Emanuela Stucchi Prinetti tending the in Chianti, Siena, Toscana
This historic estate was established as a monastery in 1058. The monks cultivated vines and olive trees. Since 1846 it has been tended to by six generations of the Stucchi Prinetti family. Sangiovese grapes and the olives thrive in the clay and limestone soil. In 1962 Piero Stucchi Prinetti realized the potential of the estate’s olive oil. He began to treat its production with the same care and attention that was bestowed on the estate’s renowned Chianti Classico Riserva wines. There are now 45 acres with 7,200 olive trees. Badia a Coltibuono Extra Virgin Olive Oil is considered by professional and home chefs, food writers and critics to be the benchmark EVOO, by which all others are judged.
