IGP Toscano Colline di Firenze Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Extra virgin olive oil is fast becoming the new fine wine, with producers establishing the finest terroir and the noble olive varieties, then teasing out masterpieces of immense complexity and character.
This one even comes from a fine wine region where they make Chianti in Tuscany. This IGP Toscano Colline di Firenze Extra Virgin Olive Oil is crafted from local olive varieties – Frantoio, Moraiolo, Pendolino and others – grown in the hills around Florence and to the north. Created to the strict PGI Tuscany regulations, it’s a harmonious oil with notes of bitter herbs, peppery spice, dried fruit and artichoke. As this oil carries fine wine gravitas, we recommend taking this to dinner parties as a gift if the host doesn’t drink or if you are unsure wine they drink or what will match the food. It’s exquisite drizzled over homemade ravioli, simple pasta roasted cherry tomatoes, soups and herby salads, or just dabbed at with fresh sourdough bread.
In 1585, the Gonnelli family bought the Santa Téa farm for 300 coins from the local monks. The farm’s mill was built in 1426, so already had a long history of oil making at this stage. There, surrounded by protected forests and nature reserves on the sun-baked plains of Reggello near Florence, the Gonnellis have passed their expertise down through the family, preserving and refining the fine art of olive oil making.
