The Piaggia olive grove is situated in the Carmignano territory and contains four varieties of excellent quality olives: 50% Frantoio and 50% divided between Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino.
The olives are hand-picked and cold-pressed on the same day with a continuous press in our oil mill.
The new oil is clear, with a green colour and golden highlights. The aroma is fresh and fruity, clean,
with a clear olive flavour, but rich in herbaceous aromas where artichokes and hints of almonds
dominate. The flavour is ample and harmonious with vegetal notes of artichokes and, to a slightly
lesser extent, of tomato and celery. A light and balanced bitterish note adds vivacity to the palate. It is excellent drizzled raw on soups, salads, pulses, bruschettas or crudités.
