L’Olio di Cosimo: Villa Campestri’s extra-virgin olive oil

As wine, extra-virgin olive oilhas different characteristics depending on the quality of olives (cultivars), the area where plants are grown and the process of production. L’Olio di Cosimo is a blend produced at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort by early 2000. Obtained from cultivars Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, Moraiolo, Piangente and Correggiolo, all grown in our olive grove and processed in our mill, the oil has all the quality requirements for the certification by TREE, an association that brings together best producers of extra-virgin olive oil in the world.

Dedicated to Cosimo, the only grandson of the owner Paolo Pasquali, named as the founder of the Medici family who ruled Florence and Tuscany in the Renaissance Time, olive oil is “round” and well balanced.

At the nose it recalls olive green, cut grass, artichoke and fresh almonds, notes of bitter, spicy, good intensity of ripe fruit. Complex chemestetic feelings of pepper and spicy, noble tactile perception of astringency.

Especially suitable with red meat such as sliced Florentine, or the famous bruschetta in three steps, the oil is stored in a special machine of our invention called OliveToLive that will keep longer each organoleptic characteristic due to conservation under nitrogen.

If you want to taste our oil, we recommend one of our Sensory Experience that will allow you to learn to recognize a quality extra-virgin olive oil, or you can sample the menu in our restaurant “L’Olivaia“.

L’Olio di Cosimo can also be purchased  in our OliveOilShop: you can choose between the elegant glass bottle or nice cans, both customized with the logo of Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort.  A true gift of taste and quality!
