CIACCI EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL , TUSCANY

Everything you need to know to taste the very best olive oil....

- Made from classic Tuscan olive varietals (Moraiolo, Lecchino, Olivastra) by 400 year old estate known worldwide for producing top Brunello wines

- Made from olives grown in distinctive soil, rich in iron and minerals - olive trees grow next to the vineyards in the southern part of Montalcino known for its sunny and warm microclimate

- Obtained only from the estate grown fruit – Ciacci doesn’t buy or sell olives like most producers in the olive oil industry. Thus, just like wine, olive oil is the expression of the land

- Naturally organic – 100+ year old olive trees grow at the elevation of 300m – too high for the olive flies to cause damage (they tend to live in the valleys and die at higher elevation) – therefore there is no need to spray trees with chemicals and harvest is very good every year

- Made from green olives as opposed to ripe ones – green olives give less oil than ripe olives (Ciacci’s yield is only 10% - 100kg of olives give 10 kg of oil – while the industry average is 20%) but the early harvest oil is more concentrated, aromatic, and healthy, packed with antioxidants. This is a healthy fat needed in our diets.

- Olives are harvested manually and pressed within a few hours of picking – this is to prevent oxidation and damage to the fruit. As a result, this olive oil has very low acidity 0.35%less than half of the required 0.8% to meet the criteria for extra virgin olive oil. Also, manual harvest is very important because when olives are picked up from the ground by machines, the oil very often contains pesticides

- Bottled by the estate - Produced in limited quantities to maximize quality

- This is a finishing oil, great to use on grilled vegetables, fish, meat, and salads. Sometimes Tuscan oils are very bitter and overpowering, this one is creamy and delicate (this is because of olivastra olive varietal). The olive oil binds the ingredients in food and brings out the flavors in a dish
