description

IGP is a European Union designation which covers the entire province of Tuscany. It is akin to the DOP certification identifying smaller geographic areas. The rules of manufacture stipulate that all the phases of the production cycle must be carried out within the zone. From picking the olives (gathered directly from the trees), through the pressing and bottling, the entire process oil must take place within the region of Tuscany. Olio Extravergine di Oliva Toscano has a maximum acidity of 0.6 percent.

Toscano IGP is produced in the hills of Val d’Orcia near Grosseto. The blend includes olives of the following varieties: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino, Olivastra, and small percentages of other olives. Harvested by hand and pressed using a modern continuous system. The oil is filtered and the color is green with gold reflections.

We describe the fragrance as possessing medium intensity, with a clear scent of olives, with herbaceous notes of artichoke and ripe fruit, reminiscent of tomato, to a lesser degree.

We recommend its use in soups, vegetables, legumes (beans), bruschetta, pinzimonio (oil, salt, and pepper for dipping fresh vegetables), salads, fish, and roasted meats.

This olive oil was first produced with the 1997 harvest and has since received many awards including:

Gambero Rosso - La Stella 2021 for 10 consecutive years of Tre Foglie

Flos Olei 2021 Hall of Fame - Frantoio Franci
