The Frescobaldi family owns about 300 hectares of olive groves between 200 and 500 meters above sea level where the microclimate gives the olives
unique characteristics for freshness and intensity of aromas and flavours. In October and never beyond November, the olives are
harvested early, before ripening, to capture their emerald green colour and the aromatic freshness. Then the olives
are always crushed in a few hours from the harvest, in the proprietary oil mill. These rules guarantee a maximum excellence.
Frescobaldi makes a strict selection and only the highest-quality extra virgin olive oil is selected to become
Laudemio Frescobaldi 2019
“In medieval times the name Laudemio indicated the part of the harvest reserved for the lord, owner of the land. To
him was offered the best part of the harvest called ‘Laudemio’, whose name has since been synonymous with value and
quality. Today Laudemio Frescobaldi represents the maximum expression of extra virgin olive oil. “
- Climate trend -
The winter was regular, with the typical cold and rainy days. The spring was characterized by an abnormal month of May,
in which both the low temperatures and the high rainfall have slowed down the flowering and consequently also the fruit set.
This caused a difference in the production of olives, with much important quantities
in areas around 200 meters above sea level, closest to Florence, and scarcity
in hilly areas over 300 meters above sea level. The summer has been
particularly hot, and ensured very healthy olives, which started the
maturation in the first half of October, contextually at the beginning of the harvest.
Uniqueness of Laudemio Frescobaldi
- Tasting Notes -
Laudemio Frescobaldi is a robust extra virgin olive oil naturally rich
with polyphenols, with a bright, emerald green colour, a scent of mown grass and
artichoke, and an intense and pleasantly spicy flavour. This year, the
aroma is extremely rich, with a great olfactory amplitude, typically hints
linked to the territory of Tuscany, opening the heart of artichoke and green olive, followed by
a note of freshly mown grass. The flavour is characterized by an extraordinary
balance among bitter, spicy and fruity.
