description

This 2019 pressing is a delightful oil from Tuscany—estate bottled at Castello del Trebbio in Pontassieve. The estate is located east of Florence, not far from Fiesole and the confluence of the Arno and Sieve Rivers.

Anna and Stefano bring to their olive oil the philosophy of "bio integrale". They use natural fertilizer from the waste of their own cows, along with the waste from the grapes and olives. The fireplaces burn wood only from the estate's land. The goal is for the farm to be completely self-sustaining -- a place you never want to leave. 

And the olive oil is magical...

To the eye this filtered oil is yellow with flecks of green and gold.

To the nose, the aroma is intense and complex with rich notes of vegetable, with green almond, and artichoke.

To the mouth, it is ample and potent, with tones of fresh herbs, and slightly bitter, with a peppery finish.

The estate has 10,000 olive trees and the cultivars are Frantoio (85%), Leccino (13%), and Moriaolo (7%).

It is a wonderful selection drizzled over beef carpaccio, ribolitta, roasted fish, and grilled meat such as the famous Tuscan Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
