The story of our oil begins with the fertile volcanic soil of Monte Amiata in southern Tuscany. The soil’s diversity, including limestone, clay, schist and marl, sustains our grove and contributes to the quality and complexity of our premium extra virgin olive oil. Our groves are located above the vineyards where the prized Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced, at between 1,300 and 2,000 feet above sea level. The trees on the northern slopes receive fewer hours of sunlight each day and ripen more slowly, creating an oil that is peppery and very aromatic.
