Fattoria Montecchio’s extra-virgin olive oil DOP is our selection of the best olives traditionally grown in the Chianti Classico area: Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo.
Harvested early by hand in October and November, exclusively from the oldest olive groves on our farm, the olives are then processed in our company olive press on the same day as harvesting.
Within five hours of pressing, the oil is subjected to a light filtering process which leaves the full-bodiedness and structure intact while maintaining the flavors, aromas and colors for a longer period of time. The oil then rests in stainless steel containers under inert gases at a temperature of between 12 °C and 17 °C, until bottling.
The care and attention we give at every stage of the process makes our Fattoria Montecchio extra-virgin olive oil DOP an absolutely exceptional product, suitable for use in the greatest Tuscan dishes. Quite simply, it is one of the pillars of a healthy and balanced Mediterranean diet.
Produced bottles: 2000 bottled per year
Extra virgin olive oil is ideal for bruschettas, salads and pinzimonio.
Owing to its low acidity, it is also excellent for cooking and frying.
