Extra Vergine d’Oliva
An unwritten tradition says that a mix of cultivar plants (Pendolino, Frantoio and Leccino) represent typical Tuscan oil. The combination of oils is decided after tasting each variety so that the mix and percentages can vary. Olive oil production, complementary to the wine, is also done with great attention, both in the olives picking, which respects local traditions, and to the analysis of the final product. Leccino, Pendolino and Frantoio varieties grow on 14 hectares that interrupt the linear geometry of the Syrah vineyards.
