Chianti Classico Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil

(Mannucci-Droandi) - 17 oz

Mannucci-Droandi produce Chianti Classico Extra Virgin Olive Oil without use of pesticides or herbicides in the farm Ceppeto near Gaiole in Chianti, Province of Siena. This product governmentally certified as both D.O.P. (of guaranteed Origin) and Organic, making it a rare gem among olive oils, further evidenced by a free oleic acidity level hovering around .16% (1/5 the allowable freshness level for extra virgin oils).

The morailo, frantoio and leccino olives are harvested early, entirely by hand and cold pressed within hours of harvest to ensure vibrancy, freshness and longevity. To the eye it is an intense golden-green, full and elegant, and its aromas are rich in notes of artichoke and rosemary. The flavor is complex yet balanced, beginning with freshly-picked field herbs and finishing with sweet almonds and pepper. Mannucci Droandi is a flavor force unto itself, excellent on everything from bruschette to antipasti to main dishes, and it is consistently rated among the finest oils in Italy. Try it on fresh pasta or seafood, or for grilling red meats.

I ordered this as a Christmas gift for a relative in the States. I am also form the States but live in Italy. I wanted to give a quality oil that came from Italy, and I even went on the Mannucci-Droandi Italian website to check them out. It was no surprise that the gift recipient gave it a thumbs up. The bottle arrived a bit dusty, since it was probably sitting in the warehouse for a while, but delivery time and packaging was great
Extra virgin olive oil obtained exclusively from Moraiolo, Frantoio and Leccino olives harvested near Gaiole in Chianti, Province of Siena.
