An outstanding extra virgin

This exceptional Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the ultimate expression of the "terroir" of Fonterutoli. A continuing commitment and dedication to the olive grove, combined with hand-picking and pressing within 2 hours in our own mill, contribute to the unique personality and subtle nuances of this "cru".

The Castello di Fonterutoli olive grove is entirely situated on the hillsides of the estate on poor, rocky soil with southern exposure. Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, and Pendolino olives are immediately crushed after picking to produce an oil of hightened quality level and flavor.
The new mill allows to work with criteria that regulate the extraction in accordance with the precise character of each and every lot of olives.
Both the oils produced at Castello di Fonterutoli are Chianti Classico D.O.P, related to the eponymous territory in the same provinces of the Chianti Classico wine appellation.

The Fonterutoli mill

At Castello di Fonterutoli we use a new and state-of-the-art olive mill.
The olives are subjected to defoliation and washing, then crushed in one of the crushers in total absence of oxygen. The avoidance of oxidation during the entire process allows the preservation of the aromas and natural characteristics of the olives over time. The paste obtained then passes into the kneading tanks, then sent to the decanter to obtain the oil that will be sent to the filtering and storage system.
Every single operation is managed through dedicated software, in order to obtain the maximum product characterization.
