This oil comes from olives typically found high in the Chianti hills, rich in limestone soils where the plant, by nature, produces very little fruit and a pulpy oil that is low in acidity, a distinctive enduring feature. In the balance between flavour and delicacy, this oil represents the best of the Quattro Pini production and carries the D.O.P. label (protected denomination of origin); hence we are members of the Chianto Classico Consortium, which requires binding commitment and technical severity.
Visibly limpid, the oil is an intense golden yellow with subtle hues of green. It has a decisive, embracing aroma with elegant tones of artichoke, cardoon, lettuce and strong herbal whiffs of mint and rosemary. Its taste is fine and has personality, with hints of garden vegetables, black pepper and a distinctly almond finish. Bitter, strong and piquant, it is ideal on antipasto of lentils, tuna salad, white meat marinades, grilled radicchio, artichoke soup, ribollita with black cabbage, first courses like ragù, grilled swordfish, roast game, grilled red meat, aged cheeses such as smoked mozzarella, provolone and caciocavallo.
