Tasting Notes

This is made from olives belonging to the Coreggiolo and Moraiolo cultivar, which are manually harvested in several phases in October, before they are fully ripe. This results in very low yields, but also in an excellent oil with acidity lower than 0.2%, and with an extremely reduced peroxide content, unlike polyphenols, antioxidants substances, which are very high. Once the olives are harvested, they are taken to the press within the space of two days, and cold pressed under nitrogen (to prevent oxidation) . This technique produces a very fresh oil with excellent aromas and flavors. It is dry, and not “greasy,” and shows a green color with intense fruity aromas. On the palate it is spicy, with artichoke accents and sweet hints of apple. Annual production is a few thousand 0.5 liter bottles.

    If you haven't tried the Rocca di Montegrossi Extra Virgin Olive Oil you are missing one of Italy's great Olive Oils. The nose is pure Tuscan, green snap and the vibrancy you'd expect from Tuscan oil. On the palate it luxurious, with a vibrant green oil flavor, and slowly, as it drifts back across your tongue that gripping, ratcheting feel in the back of your throat. The finish that is the hallmark of great Tuscan oil. Drizzle over your Bistecca Fiorentina... what a treat.
    Drink from 2017 to 2018
