The oil from Aldobrandeschi Oil mill derives from olives cultivated by our partners in the Campagnatico region. Only a small portion (10%) come from bordering areas (Grosseto, Cinigiano e Scansano). The predominant types are Frantoio, Correggiolo, Moraiolo and Leccino, which are typical of our area. Then, in lesser quantites we also have Maurino, Leccio del corno, Pendolino. The oil is produced at a temperature of 27ºC and once the production has taken place it is then carried to the mill for storage. In order to guarantee originality and high quality the product, which is taken by our partners, is brought back to the mill and stored before being put into the market. The oil undergoes chemical and sensorial testing and its results are then provided to clients and partners.
IGP Toscano oil is a result of the meticulous work of our partners who use only the best olives harvested in October and November.
The olives are personally selected by our Master Growers.
Our oil is made exclusively from typical Tuscan olive tree cultivars. Our oil is extracted cold, at exactly 27°C, and stored in specialised containers. It is then bottled directly after being filtered. Through this process, our oil develops its strong flavour and fruitiness, while keeping balance between bitter and spicy, enhancing red meat and all the genuine flavours of the Maremma cuisine.
Even the Fiordolio extra virgin olive oil has a green colour which is typical of the oils of the Campagnatico region. As this oil comes from olives picked from October to the beginning of December, its aroma and taste are harmonious and complex. The artichoke and cut grass always prevail. The green harvest of the first productions ties in with the mature harvest which is characteristic of the oil deriving from ripe and mature fruit, like the olives which transform themselves in November. The result is a bitter, spicy and fruity well-blended oil. Our extra virgin oil is ideal to put on all Tuscan and non-Tuscan cooked dishes, which are rich in flavour.

Since it derives from olives picked on the hills, its taste always remains fresh, it is never too thick, and it resembles, in part, an artichoke, but even more so freshly cut grass. The typical taste of extra virgin oil derives from green olives. Its bitterness is always [resent but it does not disturb tha palate, as it mixes with a light but persistent touch of spice.
