OLIO CASTELLO DI BROLIO 2023
OLIO EXTRA VERGINE DEL CHIANTI CLASSICO DOP

OLIVE GROVES
The olive groves at Brolio are located at 350-500m a.s.l.

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 olives were harvested by hand with olive rakes by 23 October 2023.

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

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

TASTING NOTES
Intense green colour with golden reflections. Intense fruity nose with hints of cut grass and almond. Fluid, bitter and spicy finish in the mouth, with a green olive aftertaste.
