Produced from 100% Olivastra Seggianese variety olives hand-picked in the months of October and November in the hills of Montenero d’Orcia, Tuscany. Frantoio Franci is the first Tuscan producer to receive the 'Stella', a special prize, the pride of a few, which celebrates the 'best of the best' of Italian olive growing.
Tasting: Delicate, well-rounded, with well-balanced fruity and herbaceous flavours, very light and elegant. Initially with sweet sensation on the palate, which develops into a medium peppery intensity. Beautifully harmonious and elegant complexity with a spicy and fresh finish.
Serving Suggestions: Fresh on mushroom appetizers, boiled lobster, seafood salad, chickpea soup, fish couscous, fresh cheese, bakery products. Excellent as raw artichoke dip, for home-made mayonnaise, oil-preserved vegetables and baking.
