Arguably Pruneti’s finest olive oil to date, Frantoio extra virgin olive oil, has taken home a gold medal the last three years in a row and ranks high on the index of the world’s best olive oils. Frantoio olives maintain their characteristic green color until harvest time, contributing strong bitter notes to the oils made from them. Produced from 100% Frantoio olives, this oil is so intense that even when tasted alone, you can easily identify the flavors of pinzimonio and artichoke. With muted spicy undertones, the flavor throughout is unmistakably reminiscent of green pepper and rosemary. One of our most robust offerings, this oil can match strong flavors and is the ideal finishing oil for bold dishes.
Pressed from olives situated in the heart of San Polo, in the growing region of Chianti, all 197 acres of the Pruneti farm rests within the hills and valleys of beautiful Tuscan wine country. In these idyllic pastures, wine, olives, iris, and saffron grow, filling the countryside with color, and creating a scent that fills the air with a rich perfume. With a semi-arid climate that is perfect for the growth of these crops, Tuscany is the notable home of some of the finest vineyards and olive groves in the world. Now in its fourth generation, the Pruneti family grove is one of most prestigious among them, creating oils that have continued to be at the forefront of the industry. With olive oils boasting imaginative flavors and impressive balance, these are arguably some of the best in the world. Try our fabulous Pruneti olive oil and taste the difference in your dishes and recipes, as flavors are intensified and married together by the delicious taste of Frantoio.
