Giacomo Grassi´s Grand father OLINTO was born in 1900 and has always lived in the farm of the old village of Dudda in Greve in Chianti, where he worked as a metayer with his family looking after seven hectares. He married grandmother ASSUNTA and had two children, Annunziata and Rolando.
Rolando has followed his father’s footsteps taking care of the farm. In 1982 he became the farm owner with his wife Elena and their children Giacomo and Debora; Rolando Grassi then invested into new modern techniques and purchasing more lands.
Now Giacomo Grassi farm covers an area of 26 hectares, (between ownership and rental), including 7 hectares of vineyard, 10 hectares of olive-grove, nearly 2 hectares of orchard and the remaining wood.
THE OLIVE GROVE
The olive grove from which comes this oil has 6000 olive trees under organic agriculture and it is located in the heart of the Chianti’s hills at an altitude of 600 metres above the sea. At this altitude, in the heart of Tuscany, olive groves achieve the maximum limit of cultivation, resulting in a limited production reach in nutritional and organoleptic values. Usually olives are picked in the second and third week of November.
