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 Maestri Oleari, 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.
