The Soul of Tuscany

Produced in the heart of the Florentine hills, this unctuous and unique olive oil reflects the soul of both Tuscany and the Pruneti brothers. This golden olive juice with green highlights reveals a taste full of peppery fresh herbs, very typical of the chianti terroir.

The pretty hills of Florence, covered with olive orchards and Iris, are at the origin of the Pruneti family story, which began in mid 19th century. This region is well known for premium olive oil production, but also saffron and iris flowers dedicated to perfume industry.

The Pruneti brothers, following the footsteps of their grandfather, have learned to master the grove down to the smallest detail up to the extraction in their own mill. The state of the art grinding machines allow to have the lowest impact regarding oxidation, in order to preserve freshness of this gastronomic olive oil, unctuous and perfumed. This Rameau d’or, is exceptional , its extremely low acidity rate ( 0,15%) guarantees the oil's high quality.
