Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Nourishing Nectar
Antica Quercia Verde’s 2022 Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil is ready and awaiting your tastebuds.
Our precious patch of terraced land on the south facing hills of Cortona gives our centenary olive trees optimal exposure to the Tuscan Sun. For generations this land has been tendered to organically, with no chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides. We pick our olives early in Autumn and cold press at our local high quality mill soon after picking. A unique mix of varieties including frantoio moraiolo, leccino and pendolino all contribute to create a very special product. Last year we didn’t make our oil due to a cold front during the flowering, followed by a hot Summer, so as you can imagine we are delighted to present Antica Quercia Verde’s 2022 EVOO.
This Summer was also tough for farmers in Tuscany with hail during the flowering, followed by scorching temperatures and no rain until late Summer, we weren’t sure the olives would hang on, but many did and so did we. We started picking early October and we were graced with super sunny days throughout the harvest.
Not a huge harvest, however precious as ever. Those of you who know Antica Quercia Verde’s EVOO will be delighted with this years nectar, as it has the unique qualities we hope for, bursting with fresh rich green flavour, spicy with a bitter hint, complex yet still delicate. We are now taking orders for our limited production of 500ml bottles in packs of 6, at € 18,00 per bottle to be shipped anywhere in the world. Join up with friends to save on shipping expenses, or order a 6 pack to share as the perfect Christmas gift for family and friends.
