Olives have been grown at Montenidoli since the Etruscans. Today, the Moraiolo and Correggiolo tree varieties are grown on the property; the former provides body, and the latter perfumes.The olive trees are organically grown and pruned yearly. The harvest, by hand, begins in November and continues until just before Christmas.
Montenidoli’s oil emerges from the presses opaque and brash, with powerful vegetal aromas. Throughout its youth it remains strongly flavored, with pronounced artichoke accents that make it more of a food to be served over bread than as a condiment. The oil is released after a year, when it has clarified itself naturally without filtering, to preserve its richness and vitamins. This oil will soften with time.
