2020 Harvest Robust & Grassy Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Please note: new, smaller 250ml size available.
Frescobaldi Laudemio extra virgin olive oil—a blend of three Italian olive varietals: Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino—is the epitome of a Tuscan olive oil. It's robust with bold aromas of freshly mown grass and notes of artichoke and wild arugula. The oil is well-balanced with a pleasing bitterness, round fruitiness and a sparkling finish of spiciness. A robust intensity olive oil.
How to use
Rolando Beramendi—author of AUTENTICO: Cooking Italian, the Authentic Way—suggests using this extra virgin olive oil as "Tuscan ketchup" and pouring it over everything. Add a generous finishing pour to a simple bowl of cannellini beans, sautéed greens or over a hot-off-the-grill steak—the way the Tuscans do.
About the producer
One of our favorite Tuscan olive oil producers is actually a consortium of a few estates that strive to produce the finest olive oil in Florence. They are harder on themselves than any other producer, holding their product to higher standards than any others. These high standards make Frescobaldi Laudemio oil one of the more iconic Tuscan exports.
