Produced from hand-picked olives grown in the Tuscan hills of Montenero d’Orcia from renowned producer, Frantoio Franci. This medium-intense oil has fresh and clean fruity aromas, rich in grassy scents with predominance of artichoke and elegant notes of fruit and spice. Its flavor is harmonious and complex with bitter and peppery notes, ideal for finishing soups, vegetables, legumes, bruschetta, green salads, fish and roast meats.
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.
