An internationally acclaimed extra virgin olive oil from Frantoio Pruneti. This oil is an organic blend of the most typical monovarietals of Chianti Classico: Leccino, Moraiolo and Frantoio. An oil of strong intensity, yet balanced, with notes of artichoke, grass, radish, tomato leaves, green apple and fresh almond. It is lightly spicy on the tongue with a green pepper sensation and an unmistakable black pepper finish.
"With the 'Chianti Classico Stage', the important bicycle race Giro d'Italia arrived for the first time in our beautiful hills, and for this special event we decided to create a limited edition label. Our decision to 'dress' our VIUZZO EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL with a pink label is both a way to honor the world of sport (as well as virtues of health, simplicity and perseverance) and the chance to state once more the importance for an oil to be organic, excellent, healthy and 100% guaranteed as only a product made within a family can be. An oil that has been awarded worldwide as the emblem of our territory and the symbol of our never-ending research of harmony between aromas and flavors." --Frantoio Pruneti
