For the discerning extra virgin olive oil fanatic, this is a set of four award-winning olive oils from Fonte di Foiano.

Flos Olei 2019 (99/100), Farm of the Year (Shared with Frantoio Franci)

The notable oils are: Grand Cru, 1979, Riflessi, and IGP Toscano. All were harvested and crushed in Fall 2018.

The Grand Cru Selection is produced with the best varieties of the olive-grove, hand picked in very early harvest. Intensely herbaceous and fruity, with notes of green tomato and artichoke. Intensely hot and bitter. Best for raw use--as a finishing oil.  Very low acidity, with the polyphenols at an outstandingly high 1050 mg/kg. 

1979 is intensely fruity with notes of grass, artichoke, and tomato leaf. It is both bitter and spicy with a very long, persistent finish. Excellent profile. Polyphenol level, 940.  

The Riflessi Selection is produced with the best variets of the olive grove, hand-picked Maurino and Pendolino olives of the early harvest. Very aromatice, and lightly to moderately fruity, with notes of tomato and aromatic grass. Mild spice and bitterness. Polyphenols 740 ml/kg. 

IGP Toscano: From the area of Castagneto Carducci –in Bolgheri, Tuscany, Fonte di Foiano's blend is composed of Frantoio, Moriaolo, and Leccino olives, harvested in November. Medium fruity with notes of grass and artichokes.  

Perfectly packed in an attractive wood box, making it an ideal gift.
