Taste & Aroma

Unquestionably one of the greatest Olive Oils in the world. This stunning organic oil has won countless gold awards over the years and it is not hard to see why. Bright green in colour, fresh and aromatic with notes of fresh-cut grass and almonds. The flavour is vibrant and fruity with a light, smooth texture and a distinctly appealing peppery finish. This is truly an exquisite oil which should be enjoyed every day!

Region

The Tuscan wine region is situated on the Tyrrhenian coast, in the centre of Italy. Like much of the country it has a rich wine making history. Tuscany also has a number of appellations within the region including over thirty Denominazioni di origine controllata (DOC) and at least 7 Denominazioni di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). Red grape varieties thrive here taking 70% of the region’s production. The Italian Sangiovese grape is king here and the quality of the wine it yields depends heavily on the exposure and particularly on the altitude at which it is planted. From Tuscany, we recommend either the smooth yet full bodied Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2012 or for something a little more decadent, the 2006 Fattoria Petrolo Galatrona made from 100% Merlot from the Petrolo Estate.
