Classic Tuscan Estate Olive Oil – 2020 Harvest

Tasting notes

This year's Tenuta di Capezzana Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pure elegance. A blend of four Tuscan olive varietals—Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino—this Italian olive oil has a delicate fruity aroma with notes of green almond, verbena and chamomile. On the palate you'll find it incredibly clean, redolent of delicate herbs such as fennel fronds and watercress. A mild intensity oil.

How to use

This food-friendly olive oil elevates whatever you pour it on into something extraordinary—drizzle over a plate of citrus segments, sliced tomatoes topped with basil or simply steamed romanesco or cavalo nero (Tuscan kale). It would be equally delicious poured liberally over mashed potatoes and topped with crunchy crystals of Maldon Sea Salt and served with thinly sliced roast beef. 

About the Producer

Filippo Bonacossi, son of the Count Uno and Countess Lisa Contini Bonacossi (owners of Tenuta di Capezzana), supervises the groves of 5 different olives grown on the estate in Tuscany, while the rest of the family handle the business of running a wine and olive oil estate. Tenuta di Capezzana is one of the premier wine and olive oil estates in all of Italy and a family operation whose product's stellar reputation we are proud to bring to you.

Heaven in a Bottle

This is an olive oil I am tempted to drink in a shot glass. It is so yummy. Sometimes I pour a drizzle on a thin sesame cracker and revel in its lovely flavor.

Thank you, Market Hall

For introducing me to the pleasures and necessity of high quality olive oil and to Tenuta di Capezzana in particular - truly an outstanding olive oil to be savored and a must have for my pantry along with Seka Hills or Katz for cooking.

Wonderful olive oil

Treat yourself to this fine quality olive oil, as a staple in your pantry for salad dressings and special meals. Elegant, easy on the palate and distinctive. Worth the price point.

So far this is the best olive oil I hava had

I am constantly trying new olive oils and I would have to say this is the best one to date. The other oils such as the 2011 Frantoio di Sommaia Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2011 Titone Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and the 2011 Frescobaldi Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil are all great as well but not quite as good in my mind. I love the perfect balance of buttery sweetness with the lingering yet light bite of pepper it finishes with.

Can't visit Italy? This is almost as good

I love Italy! The language, the people, the scenery, the art, the food . . . did I mention the food? And fresh-from-the-tree olive oil is the best! For years you couldn't get that olive oil here; everything was old and tired and tasteless. But Tenuta di Capezzana is almost as good as sitting among the olive trees. Green, fragrant, tasty . . . molto bene!
