Tenuta Fanti Olivastra is created from a collection of trees grown on a sunny Tuscan hillside. This vibrant and delicious extra virgin olive oil is a monocultivar Olivastra and fragrant with grassy green, and herbaceous aromas. The Tenuta Fanti Olivastra is packed with a rich bitterness and lingering pungency. This profile will augment almost any dish. Its robust and intense flavour is perfect for using over soups, paired with aged cheeses and even homemade pizza dough.
Italy has the greatest biodiversity of olives compared to any other country. They boast more than 500 unique varietals of olives. Many of these are found on just one hillside or are unique to one community. A cluster of trees that have grown in that location for hundreds of years. Tenuta Fanti estate has been part of the Fanti family for over 300 years and extends through the rolling hills of Tuscany. Their focus is viticulture, although on the land is naturally, olives too, more than 8,500 trees. With a focus on quality, their wine and olive oil production reflect their dedication and share their deep history through their products.
Their olive oil is a testament to all that they create, the taste and quality in each bottle is so delicious. This olivastra is no exception and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
