 olio  della donna

Super high quality olive oil from Tuscany and Sicily. We chose ideal production zones in each region and together work with organic farmers to keep the soil healthy, the trees happy and to protect the olives from the dreaded fruit fly; we fret just a little bit when it doesn't rain. 

  

Each fall healthy olives are picked and milled within hours in technologically advanced mills. Expert millers tweak the mill for each batch depending on variables like the olive varieties, ripeness level and external temperature. Our goal is to extract the oil in perfect condition, with balanced, complex aromas and flavors and to showcase the characteristics of the olive varieties traditionally grown in the different regions.

tuscan olio  

Piero tuscan field blend

  

A field blend of organic Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and other olive varieties indigenous to the Florentine hills of Tuscany. Medium intensity with complex aromas of artichoke, arugula and fresh cut grass, balanced bitterness and spiciness contribute its harmonic persistence.

    

An homage to Piero Dogolini, self-sufficient Tuscan farmer from the last century who made his olive oil just like we do. He pruned carefully (saving the cuttings for firewood), farmed organically to help the trees produce good fruit and then took his olives to a technologically advanced mill because he believed that was the way to make the best tasting oil that keeps its flavor (and health benefits) the longest. Thanks Piero!

Sicilian olio 

  

lastoria sicilian blend

  

A blend of organic Nocellara del Belice and Biancolilla olives go into this exuberant oil with lots of fruity, tomatoey perfumes, a full, round body and a little bit of  bright spice. 

  

The history, storia, of this project is reflected in this oil, made in the Belice valley in the interior of northwest Sicily, where it all started back in the 1700s, in the groves of contrada della Donna. A more recent, slightly scathing, remark from my aunt in Sicily kickstarted this project: You don't buy olive oil, you make it. After making award winning olive oils with a farm in Tuscany I'm producing my own Olio della Donna. Thanks Francesca!
