In the heart of Chianti Classico, a territory famous for its excellent agricultural cultivation of olive trees, the young brothers Pruneti, passionate about extra virgin olive oil from an early age, live as guardians of a family tradition handed down over four generations. The Pruneti family personally oversees all stages of production through to the final product, ensuring that their oils reach the highest levels of quality. Applying both ancient wisdom and new knowledge to their production process, Pruneti's extra virgin olive oil has earned its place as a true symbol of the land. Their company is consistently awarded by the editors of Marco Oreggia's Flos Olei guidebook and given the Top Farm ranking of 97/100 in 2014.
