Tuscany

Map of Tuscany

Toscana,or Tuscany in English, is considered the classic olive oil region of Italy by many.  The oils of Lucca and the Chianti regions of Toscana are best known.

The oils produced in the area around Lucca, near the coast, tend to be yellow, light and fluid. In the Chianti region, near Siena in the heart of Toscana, the oils tend to be more green, and spicy with hints of artichoke and pepper.  Further south in the area around Montalcino, the oils tend to be deeper colors, more rustic, and more intense flavors.

We are thrilled to have Avignonesi again! Always a favorite, Avignonesi is produced in eastern Tuscany in the Chianti Classico area in the classic Tuscan style of olive oils. An impressive extra virgin olive oil and a terrific gift!

Guadagnolo Dulcis is lively and fruity, of medium intensity. Slightly riper fruit bring forth a selection with notes of almond and dried fruit. In perfect balance, bitterness and pungency combine.
