2018 Harvest Olive Oil from Renowned Tuscan Olive Oil Estate
The 30th Harvest of Frescobaldi’s Laudemio is a true testament to its lineage. It is crafted from the purest cold-pressing of perfectly wholeFrantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino olivesfrom the family’s property in the hills surrounding Florence. Matteo Frescobaldi describes his family’s oil: “Unique, witharomas of fresh fruit, freshly mown grass, and artichokes.A very typical example of what we consider the best, and what we have been enjoying for the past 30 years.”
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 overeverything.Add a generous finishing pour to a simple bowl of white beans, sautéed Tuscan kale, roasted potatoes or a flame-kissed bone-in ribeye steak.
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.
