The nose smells like green hints of salad and artichoke. The entrance into the mouth is characterized by extreme vigour given by the clear spicy sensation of chili, artichoke and sage with pleasurable balsamic hints. The characteristics of sourness and spiciness are persistent
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil ESSENTIA GOCCE D’ORO COLLEZIONE comes from the Frantoio and Moraiolo varieties of olives, typical of the Florentine countryside, coming exclusively from the best olive groves which have been present for centuries in the territory of Fiesole. Splendid blend, synthesis of tradition and territory, excellent result that renews the passion with which Giovanni Donnini has been committed to its enhancement for years. The olives of Moraiolo and Frantoio varieties, all exclusively cultivated and harvested by hand on the Farm owned in Fiesole, are pressed on the same day of their picking at the Pruneti Oil Mill, that’s innovative and futuristic in the techniques of crushing and bottling, in order to limit the oxidation of the oil as much as possible. The immediately filtered oil is then bottled in bottles of 0.25 and 0.50 cl thus ensuring a use with as much fragrance as the occasion requires.
