OUR EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

Our 3000 olive trees stand on a hill at 400 meters above sea level, in front of the San Gimignano towers. Correggiolo, Leccino, Moraiolo, and Frantoio are the typical olive trees of this area. From them we obtain the Correggiolo oil (produced from the Correggiolo variety only) and the Organic extra virgin olive oil (produced from Leccino, Moraiolo, and Frantoio varieties).
Hand harvest takes place in the middle of October.
