Fattoria di Petroio Tuscan Olive Oil - 500 ml - Quersegrossa, Italy
2013 harvest

About Petroio Olive Oil
Fattoria di Petroio produces what many would describe as a classic Tuscan olive oil. Like many Tuscan single estate olive oils, theirs is a blend of Frantoio, Leccino, Correggiolo and Moraiolo olive varietals. Harvested between Late October and early December and milled within 12 hours of harvest, you will taste those familiar Tuscan notes of artichoke, with good amount of fruitiness, and a medium peppery heat.

About Fattoria di Petroio
Just a few kilometers from Siena, nestled in the Chianti hillsides, in the heart of the beautiful Tuscan countryside, lies Fattoria di Petroio. This Estate has its historic origins on the ancient road between Siena and Florence, which passes right in front of the main Villa, and has made Petroio a strategic reference point between these two cities. For this reason on the property it's possible to find ruins and artifacts from different eras, such as the burg of Palazzo Petrojo, which has always been inhabited even before it became the property of Luigi Pallini in the 19th century.

The Pallini-Lenzi family has since then been responsible for Petroio up to the actual owner, Gian Luigi Lenzi, who inherited the Estate from his grandfather Luigi Pallini II in 1961. Gian Luigig, together with his wife, Pamela, have invested new energy into the wine and olive oil production, renewing both vineyards and cellars and transforming them, with hard work and numerous structural changes, from their rural origins to a high quality wine and olive oil production.

Today, thanks to the 15 hectares of vineyards, and over 822 olive trees, which over the years have been replanted, the Estate produces about 40,000 bottles of Chianti Classico, 4,000 bottles of Chianti Classico Riserva, 5,000 bottles of IGT Rosso Toscano, and 300-600 bottles of classic Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

But Petroio is not just vineyards, vines, olive groves, wine and olive oil. Petroio estate also has over 247 acres of woodlands dedicated and reserved for the repopulation and preservation of the local fauna. Innumerable, deer, fox, porcupines, wild boar, pheasant and many local bird varieties find refuge from the expanding nearby towns among the tall trees and scrubs.

To date, we have had the pleasure of getting to know almost the whole Lenzi family. Pam and her husband, Gian Luigi, and her daughter, Diana, are frequent vistors to the Seattle area, as Pam grew up in Seattle but a stones throw from our current warehouse location.
