New to the market and an early award winner, “1979” is outstanding. But, what is the reason behind the name? That’s the year the grove was planted. The artisan olive farmers at Fonte di Foiano have yet another winner with 1979. This oil is a blend of Frantoio (60%) and Moraiolo (40%) olives, harvested in October. This line had a new label with the 2017 harvest.
