Two words about L’olinto Frantoio Chianti Classico DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Nowadays the Frantoio olives are a variety which can be found all over the world and has thus lost its ties with its original territory. This is why even if we find notice of its cultivation in the Florentine area since 1700, none considers it any longer exclusively a Tuscan variety.
The plant is very strong and large, its flowers are self-compatible and very fertile while its fruits, long in shape grow ripe late and not all at the same time.
Since 1996 Giacomo Grassi produces in the Chianti Classico area, in the heart of Tuscany, his monocultivar oils that have been awarded several times both in Italy and in Germany. For years Giacomo Grassi has studied and perfected the art of cultivation, harvesting and processing.
There are three oil mills where olives are processed and bottled, based on which processing methods and which characteristics of the machines lead to better oil. For each monocultivar there is a precise moment of the harvest, that has to be respected.
At the moment the Giacomo Grassi farm has an area of 25 hectares. Native varieties have been planted in the new olive groves.
