A complete set of four oils from award-winning producer, Frantoio Pruneti: Leccino, Moraiolo, and Frantoio, and a blend called Viuzzo. All oils are pressed from organically farmed olives grown in the renowned Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. The collection is a wonderful way to compare and appreciate the differences between the most typical varieties of the Chianti region, while offering several tips for matching each oil with different dishes.
LECCINO: A light intensity oil, balanced in both bitter and spiciness, though not aggressive, with aromas of grass, fresh vegetables and green apple, with a simple white pepper finish.
MORAIOLO: An oil of strong intensity and spicy sensations with aromas of almond, nuts, oregano, and dried fig, with a powerful black pepper finish.
FRANTOIO: An oil of strong intensity with notes of artichoke, arugula, green almond and cucumber, with a green pepper and rosemary finish.
VIUZZO: 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.
