Oil

 

In addition to its high production value, the Artimino estate boasts over 400 years of history. The Medici family held the property in high esteem and lived there during the golden age of their rule, the Renaissance. The property's 18,000 olive plants produce an extremely top quality extra-virgin olive oil, via the cold press of moraiole, frantoie, and pendoline olives. Produced since Etruscan times, the oil is still famous and appreciated today due to its emerald green colour and characteristic flavour that boasts pleasant hints of artichoke with an agreeably bitter lingering taste.
