CAMPO DI TORRI organic extra virgin olive oil
If you love organic extra virgin olive oil as much as we do, give yourself a gift.
Tuscany has always been a land of small, high-quality farms, the result of a millennium of understanding between land and men, of hard work but also of the pleasure of producing and sharing a great product. In the 16 hectares of olive grove on our farm, nestled in the hills of the Arno Valley not far from Florence, we have selected Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo trees, typical Tuscan varieties, and provided them with an ideal environment so they may grow healthy and strong.
Even if it means forgoing a greater yield, we harvest our olives early in order to pick the fruit at its prime.
We pick by hand using the ancient method known as “brucatura”, which does not harm either the tree or its fruit. To enhance the product’s quality, we are at the mill within hours after picking.
The olives are washed in clean, fresh water and then cold-pressed immediately.
This is how we produce our organic extra virgin olive oil that is unique for the harmony of its aroma, taste and colour and for the excellence of its characteristics.
Azienda Agricola Il Casellino, whose production is entirely organic, is located in the locality
of Torri, about two kilometres west of Rignano sull’Arno, Florence, at an elevation of 350 metres above sea level.
Its lands, which were originally under the Abbey of Santa Maria Vallombrosa, have been devoted
to vineyards and olive groves since 1586.
Il Casellino covers 38 hectares, 16 are dedicated to organic olive growing. Besides producing top quality organic extra virgin olive oil, the farm devotes itself to the rediscovery of antique varieties of fruit and the recovery of threatened breeds, like the Valdarno black rooster – the historic symbol of Chianti Classico – still considered extinct.
