LECCINO, FRANTOIO, MORAIOLO, MORESCA OLIVES
The Elisabetta estate has its own frantoio (the olive oil making rooms, mill and apparatus), which Luigi and Elisabetta Brunetti and their family built to produce the highest quality olive oil. The olive harvest takes place immediately after the grape harvest, in October. The fruit is harvested by hand and placed in small crates which are brought to the frantoio within twenty-four hours for the subsequent stages of processing the olives.
The olive oil has a green color of good intensity and very rich aromas, reminiscent of fresh olive paste and freshly cut thistle. Rich also in the mouth, tasted alone it demonstrates all the characteristics of the Tuscan area, fresh, sweet, but at the same time with a pleasant spicy note.
