An organic olive oil pressed from 100% Leccino olives of Tuscany.

  • Organic Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Certified organic olive oils use organically grown olives and meet organic production standards for their region. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Leccino

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Polyphenols (mk/kg): 461mg

    Polyphenols are antioxidant micronutrients found in plant-based foods. The phenolic concentration in olive oil depends on variables like the variety, ripeness at harvest, extraction methods, etc. Visit our Health Benefits page to learn more.

  • Acidity: 0.18%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2020

    As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.

Description

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.
