A PORTION OF BADIA A COLTIBUONO’S OLIVE GROVE AT PODERE ALBERETO, OVERLOOKING THE ARNO RIVER VALLEY, IS DEDICATED TO THE PRODUCTION OF THIS ORGANIC OIL. Pressed immediately after harvest to achieve the full expression of this rare oil’s aroma and flavor. Production is limited.
CULTIVARS: 100% estate grown, EU Certified Organic Maurino with Frantoio, Pendolino and Leccio del Corno.
NOTES: This IGP Tuscan olive oil is a brilliant green-gold color. The aroma is very intense and fresh. Notes of freshly cut grass, artichoke, aromatic herbs such as thyme and oregano. It is well-balanced, with a very slight bitter note, a decisive peppery note, and a very clean aftertaste.
PAIRINGS: On grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with sliced tomatoes and arugula, lavished on grilled vegetables as antipasti, to dress a chickpea salad, or to anoint beef carpaccio with Parmigiano and porcini.
