This extra virgin olive oil is a delightful blend of Italian variety olives carefully selected by Frantoio Franci. This light fruity oil has clear scents of olives with soft hints of ripe fruit and artichoke. Its flavor is slightly sweet with a moderate spiciness. Use fresh on salads, bruschetta and fish. It is also ideal for sauces, light frying and for oil-preserved vegetables.
Founded in 1958, Frantoio Franci is located in Montenero dÛªOrcia, a small hilltop town on the slopes of the Amiata Mountains overlooking the splendid valley of the River Orcia. In that year the brothers Franco and Fernando Franci purchased the famous Villa Magra olive grove, proceeding to transform the old barn into an oil mill where they continue to produce some of the most outstanding oils in Tuscany today. Winning prestigious awards year after year from the likes of the Slow Food Guide, Flos Olei, and the ÛÏMaestri OleariÛ, the most prestigious international olive oil competition, Frantoio Franci continues to honor their commitment to producing true, genuine quality extra virgin olive oils without compromise.
