The production of Mugello olive oil falls within the Tuscan IGP Colline Fiorentine area. It's a green coloured oil that can acquire golden-yellow shades over time. The fruity taste of the ripe, green olives is accompanied by hints of almonds, artichoke and grass, with strong bitter and spicy notes.
The cold and humid climate in the area didn't permit the cultivation of large plots of olive groves, particularly in the valley floor where frosts more easily damage the plants. However, in the last 15 years, the production of olive oil has continuously increased with remarkable results from a qualitative perspective.
Olive trees are grown at an altitude of between two hundred and five hundred meters, and the varieties of olive present are leccino, frantoio, moraiolo, pendolino, maurino, as well as other native types. On the same day that the olives are harvested by hand, they are transferred to the mill where they are cold-pressed. The olive oil is now produced and is transported to the company and subsequently bottled.
