As seen in Cooks' Illustrated March - April 2016. Frescobaldi Laudemio is a stunning emerald green color. We found it to be redolent of fresh cut grass with elements of fruit and floral. The taste is olives and artichokes, pungent and complex, with a notable peppery finish. A robust and complex oil. Packaged in a gift box. Filtered, estate-bottled.
Review: “an excellent example of a very carefully made oil, virtually fault free…without the aggressive character typical of Tuscan oils — one that often puts off U.S. consumers. This harvest has a well-rounded flavor of fresh walnuts and a spicy peppery finish.” -- Nancy Harmon Jenkins, ZesterDaily.com, 2.12.13
This estate is located in the hills of Chianti Rufina. All producers of Laudemios must adhere to strict guidelines established by the Laudemio consortium. The Frescobaldi Laudemio is consistently rated "exceptional."
