A monovarietal extra virgin olive oil from Frantoio Pruneti pressed from 100% Moraiolo variety olives grown in the Chianti area of Tuscany. This oil is intended to enhance the green, balsamic and very spicy notes that are typical of the Moraiolo variety. Strong notes of radish, almond, nuts, nutmeg, oregano and dried fig lead to a spicy, powerful black pepper finish. Recommended for cooked fish, white meat, grilled vegetables and drizzled over fresh, sweet cheeses. Most suitable for complex dishes, especially cheese-based.
