From a small property in Tuscany, for the last few years the crop has been blighted by the wrong kind of weather ( yes, they get it too wet and too cold in Italy too!) but this year has been a bumper crop so there is a small amount of oil available to buy.
The olives are grown on a small estate near Monte San Savino. Hand picked in the traditional fashion and then cold pressed at the local mill on 13 November 2015. This year they picked 1060kg of olives which yielded 137 litres of oil.
This oil is produced from a blend of Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo olives which produces the distinctive peppery bite and after taste of good Tuscan olive oil.
