Olive Oil

Fattoria di Montemaggio is known for harvesting the finest wines, but also for its organic extra virgin olive oil. Olive trees have been cultivated in Tuscany since the times of Etruscans. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Montemaggio is obtained from typical varieties of this zone: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and Pendolino.

The harvest takes place by hand from beginning until the mid of November so as to preserve the integrity, freshness and organoleptic properties of the fruit. To prevent oxidation and obtain oil of the highest quality, newly picked olives are transferred to the mill (olive press) in the next 24 hours after being harvested. At the mill, the olives are first cold pressed and then stored at low temperatures.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Montemaggio has a vivid green colour. The taste is full and persistent. It has notes of almonds, artichokes and fresh grass, and at the same time has a particular note of spice and sweet bitterness.
