The olive grove at Tarci is located at an altitude of about 500m a.s.l.

SOIL
Macigno del Chianti (arenarie).

GROWING SEASON
The seasonal trend of 2023 saw a rainy and at times warm spring. Severe rains during the flowering caused a decrease in the fruit yield. The hot and dry summer has on the one hand avoided the presence of the olive fly, but on the other, it has stressed the olives. On the second ten days of October, the return of the rains have rehydrated the olives, allowing the extraction of elegant oil and with a balanced spicy and bitter taste.

OLIVE HARVEST
The Frantoio olives were harvested exclusively by hand with olive in the second fortnight of November 2023

CRUSHING
The olives were processed within eight hours of harvesting in a continuous-cycle mill.
Hammer crusher. The pasta was churned for 30 minutes at 25°C. Extraction with three-way

STORAGE
Upon arrival at the storage area, the oil was filtered and stored in stainless steel containers in an environment protected from the air.
