DOP Chianti Classico
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We walked the gravel roads one step at a time, the barren fields pressing against the dry stone walls, the olive groves exposed to the sun between vineyards and woods, high up on the hill. A land defined by time and by the bravery of Chianti Classico dwellers. Together we have ministered and retrieved every single tree, keeping our identity alive and well, now and forever.

Characteristics

We monitor the mechanical extraction to maintain a constant processing temperature so that the pressed olives and the must oil obtained spend just moments in contact with or are exposed to oxygen. The just-extracted oil is filtered in line, and then proceeding to the careful separation of the day’s batches.
The oil is stored in stainless steel protected from light at a temperature below 22°C to prolong the shelf-life; it is then vacuum-bottled (just before the product leaves for markets) using a bottle that reduces the impact of UV-ray penetration by 97%.
