Mannucci-Droandi Organic DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,
Chianti Classico in the heart of Tuscany is the location for olive oil purists.
Mannucci Droandi is a true visionary, and Tuscan through and through. He is the originator of the organic revolution in this area. He is not only the reigning olive oil champion, but is one of the few truly organic top tier producers. Droandi is the leader in aroma and flavor in this part of the world. This EVOO is thick and fruity with an intensity unmatched by anyone.
Moraiolo, Frantoio and Leccino olives grown at Mannucci Droandi's estate in Italy are hand-harvested to create this certified organic extra virgin olive oil. In order to not injure the olive skins, the olives are allowed to fall from the trees into a basket. They are then cold-pressed within 2-3 hours of harvest giving the oil "vibrancy, freshness, and longevity". This handmade, organic nature requires lots of time, labor, and love. When you consider that one liter of this extra virgin olive oil is one full tree's worth of harvest, you can understand how special this bottle on your table is. Mannucci Droandi EVOO has an extremely low free oleic acid content and a high level of polyphenols, earning it a place among the best extra virgin oils in Italy. Mannucci Droandi is one of the few oils in its zone, and the country, to be both organic and have the coveted D.O.P. status (Denominazione di Origine Protetta).
It is an extraordinary extra virgin olive oil.
