Our wines presentation of our products

Our wines presentation of our products The Castello di Oliveto's Estate covers 1200 hectares of natural landscape. Only the most sun-exposed areas are used for vineyards, letting the sun of the Florentine hills age the grapes of traditional Tuscan varieties, including: Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia.

Much of the estate's land is left wooded to keep the original natural environment intact, positive proof of a truly sustainable agriculture. The name Oliveto, meaning olive grove in Italian, is for the historic olive tree orchards that are still on the estate. Honoring tradition, the olives are harvested by hand and brought whole to the olive press, where they become a wonderfully fragrant extra virgin olive oil. Grapes are likewise harvested strictly by hand. The entire production process takes place within the winery, from fermentation to bottling.

OLIO EXTRA-VERGINE DI OLIVA

Olio

The name "Fattoria Oliveto" is the evidence of the old vocation in growing olive trees on the farm. At about 150 m. above sea-level, centuries old olive trees have been grown in mostly clayey soil, according to the traditional patterns or the modern monoconic plants. The varieties are the most well known in the Chianti area: Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and Pendolino. The olive crop is strictly by hand, in November and December, and cold pressed within 24 hours. The peculiarity of this olive oil is the very low acidity, the dull green colour, the fruity and strong smell and the richness of fragrance.
