The farm produces an excellent Tuscan organic olive oil.
“La Collina degli Olivi” gets his name from the location on top of a hill near Grosseto, in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. It is surrounded by an olive grove which produces an excellent organic olive oil. The farm is a family-run business with about 11 hectares of land dedicated almost exclusively to the cultivation of olives.
The main varieties of olives present are typically Tuscan: the Frantoiano, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino.
The olives are harvested manually, usually during the first half of October, and pressed on the same day by the Tuscan College of Olive Cultivators OL.MA. following specific guidelines for organically grown olives.
A golden yellow oil with subtle green highlights is extracted; limpid, almost brilliant.
The aroma recalls an freshly pressed olive with a hint of herbs.
The extravirgin olive oil possesses a combination of flavours: a pinch of bitterness, an elegant touch of a biting flavour, delicate presence of spicy undertones and a masterful hint of artichoke.
The extravirgin olive oil produced is qualified by the Tuscan Denomination and the Geographically Protected Specification obtained by organic agriculture.
