This unique honey made from the nectar of Tuscan sunflowers is deliciously sweet with an unmistakable flavor. Sunflower honey is prized for its antineuralgic and antypiretic qualities and for lowering cholesterol. It is an ideal sweetener for making cookies and dessert sweets and is excellent with cheeses such as Asiago, Taleggio, and Pecorino.
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.
