Tuscany with its rolling hills and valleys, and wonderful semi-arid climate, has the perfect natural growing conditions for olives. The ideal environment coupled with the world’s highest concentration of olive tree varietals, makes the region of Tuscany Italy, the best possible place to grow and make olive oil. Situated in the heart of Chianti, in the rural Tuscan town of San Polo, sits the sprawling olive grove now owned by the Pruneti brothers. The fourth generation of olive masters, the brothers, create some of the finest and most highly regarded olive oils in the world. With a long list of accolades and awards, Frontoio Pruneti has managed to marry old-world techniques with modern technology to create truly spectacular products.
A true representation of the oil within Pruneti’s Leggero boasts a delicate white and silver label that mirrors the refined flavor of its oil. The taste and scent of Leggero is ideally suited to dishes with light flavor profiles that it can highlight without being compromised or overpowered. Medium-light this fruity oil is beautifully balanced, characterized by notes of green grass and sweet vegetables. We recommend pairing this olive oil with steamed white fish or roasted vegetables. It also makes an excellent dressing for salads and a great addition to sauces meant to accompany white meat.
