EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

The land surrounding Meleto Castle, located at an altitude ranging from 360 to 530 meters above sea level, is home to an olive grove with about 1,600 centuries-old olive trees which are used to produce an organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil with extraordinary sensory and nutritional qualities.

The olive trees are cultivated using the polyconic vase growing system, while the main cultivars are traditionally Tuscan ones: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and Pendolino. Usually the olives are hand-harvested in early November.

The olives are pressed on the day they are harvested and produce olive oil which is particularly fruity, appropriately acidic and slightly spicy.
