A monovarietal extra virgin olive oil from Frantoio Pruneti pressed from 100% Leccino variety olives grown in the Chianti area of Tuscany. The delicate oil that comes from the Leccino olive is often covered in the Tuscan blends by varieties that are more bitter and spicy, thus providing a wonderful opportunity to taste the Leccino olive with all of its delicate but wonderful characteristics. Its notes are of fresh grass, parsley, chive, celery and green apple with a soft but persistent sensation of wild asparagus. This oil is not too aggressively bitter or spicy and has a simple white pepper finish.
