Following the severe frosts in Tuscany in 1985, when many of the olive trees were destroyed, a group of producers – with the Frescobaldi’s at their helm – set up a marketing group to guarantee the provenance and quality of their oils. The Laudemio group still endures today, and represents some of the best oils of the region, and the world.
A striking deep emerald green in colour, with some lemon pith, woody herbs and spearmint all present in the aroma this complex and delicious oil. This complexity continues in the mouth – full and aromatic, with some bitter leaves, more woody herbs, raw artichoke and a long lasting green peppercorns at the finish. Hailed as one of the best olive oils in the worlds, it is a luxurious kitchen pantry must-have.
Drizzle this refined, bold and interesting oil atop fresh salads, roasted vegetables and more.
