Frescobaldi Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Tasting Notes
Region: Tuscany, Italy
“The perfect finishing oil; think of it as your Tuscan ketchup! This gorgeous bottle takes centerstage at your dinner table when serving grilled grass-fed steaks. Pour generously over any winter green such as kale, chard, and beet greens. Elegantly swirl over steamed romanesco broccoli, creamy cannellini beans, and chickpeas. Enjoy the explosion of flavors when simply using as a dip in pinzimonio (raw vegetable crudités).”
Laudemio Frescobaldi 2022 has a very pungent and decisive character. The aroma is of fresh olives, just harvested and pressed. On the palate it is simultaneously bitter and spicy, with the typical Tuscan flavor of artichoke and wild arugula. In the mouth the feeling is very clean, with a long-lasting pleasant spiciness.
Frescobaldi’s Laudemio continues to be a true testament to its lineage. It is crafted from the purest cold-pressing of perfectly whole Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino olives from the family’s property in the hills surrounding Florence. Frescobaldi selects only the finest extra virgin olive oil to become Laudemio.
