We now have several of our "new" (2017 harvest) arrivals available online and to all our Members.
We set out this past harvest season (November/December 2017) with the goal of exploring what fine oils we could discover in the central region of Italy, Tuscany and Umbria. Not only is this area well known for its wines but we soon found that this region is blessed with some of the finest Producers in the country!
The extra virgins coming from this area have such character, that it was very difficult making our selections for the New Year. The typical cultivars of; Mariolo, Pendolino, Leccino, Frantoio are very well represented and strongly expressed in many samples. Some other cultivars, new to us such as; Madonna dell' Impruneta, Leccio del Corno, San Felice, Correggiola and Razzo yielded some pleasant surprises. All in all we experienced extra virgin olive oils that were very floral and aromatic, vibrant and full-bodied in every way!
These oils are "not shy" and clearly express the strength, character and wonderful history of this region of Italy!
