GAIA'S PLATE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

2017 HARVEST - NOW AVAILABLE! 

Gaia’s Plate Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a blend of traditional Tuscan varietals: Frantoio, Pendolino, Moraiolo, Leccino and Mignola. Every bottle comes from Fattoria di San Quintino, my family’s 200 hectare estate farm located in the countryside between Florence and Pisa.  

  • The olives are handpicked in November and milled within 24 hours of harvesting at a state of the art milling facility near the farm.
  • They are cold-pressed at temperatures below 27°C, in complete absence of oxygen to avoid oxidation

about this year's harvest 

2017 was a good year: the olives were healthy and we picked them in early November, as we usually do. The resulting oil is exactly the taste profile you would expect from a Tuscan extra virgin olive: green olives with hints of artichoke to the nose and the right pepperiness to the mouth.

Unfortunately in most parts of Central Italy production was down by 30% which resulted in higher production costs, that's why I had to slightly increase the price. A little price for yet another great year of cooking!


TASTING NOTES

Colour: Intense green.

Taste: Full-flavoured with crisp, fresh green vegetable notes, particularly artichoke, and a tasty vein of pungent pepperiness. A true Tuscan olive oil with a remarkably piquant distinctiveness and lingering aromatic notes.

Nose: Fruity with some green leaf aroma; clean-edged fruity fragrances of green olive, with nuances of artichoke and thistle

Pairing: wonderful drizzled directly on lightly-toasted artisanal bread and on raw vegetables. Add it as a finishing touch on soups, pasta or light fish
