OLIO EXTRA VERGINE DI OLIVA Castello di Monsanto - Toscana 750cl
Olives : Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Leccino and Frantoio.
Hand-picked olives are pressed the same day at Castello di Monsanto mill to preserve the aromas and nutritional value.
With a clear commitment to production quality in the DOP this tuscan olive oil has a style that is less rich, but more aromatic and characterful than equivalents from other regions – mainly from the south, particularly Puglia.
Colour is a vivid shade of green, which becomes yellowed with the passing of time. The striking aromas are fruity and fresh, with nuances reminiscent of chlorophyll, while it is fragrant, well balanced and rounded on the palate. The oil has a slight spiciness and a pleasant bitter taste, typical of Frantoio variety.
