Capezzana Olive Oil has a very intense green colour and very fruity aromas of freshly cut grass and artichokes. On the palate, it is dense and viscous, with flavours that match the aromas on the nose, a very long finish with a touch of spice. A very elegant and harmonious Olive Oil.

Capezzana Estate "Always known among the products of the Tenuta di Capezzana is extra virgin olive oil, obtained from olives of the Moraiolo and Frantoio varieties, with a small percentage of Pendolino and Leccino. The olives are pressed within the 24 hours following the collection in the modern technically innovative company crusher because it extracts the oil by subjecting the dough to a soft centrifugation. The low temperature and speed of processing contribute to giving an oil rich in aromas and aromas typical of the territory of Carmignano. The oil then decants in the historic orciaia adjacent to the mill, according to the ancient system that avoids a second centrifugation. 

A Brilliant green, Capezzana oil is distinguished by its elegance and delicacy."

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.
