2012 Frescobaldi "Laudemio" Olive Oil Toscana (500ml) (Previously $33)

SKU #1123245

From Frescobaldi: "In medieval times the term laudemio indicated the part of the harvest reserved for the feudal lord. As the best part of the harvest, the 'Laudemio' was offered to the nobleman and the name has by now become a byword for prestige and quality. Today Laudemio is the name of a consortium created in 1986 to attain the highest quality olive oil of Tuscany setting rules more restrictive than the current general regulations. Laudemio Frescobaldi is produced from the olive varieties Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino, harvested by hand and milled the same day at a controlled temperature at the property's own mill. It represents the highest expression of Tuscan olive oil; intense and brilliant green with a marked perfumes of mown grass and artichoke, a very intense and typically spicy flavour. The growing season for this vintage passed from a notably cold winter to a summer of very elevated temperatures, putting the olives to the test. Despite these extremes the oil produced in 2012 has characteristics of excellent balance with perfectly healthy olives and splendid aromas. All phases of the harvest and processing were carried out according to the regulations of Laudemio. The harvest began the 22nd of October just slightly in anticipation of the maturation of the olives."

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
