Winner of the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition "Gold Award" for the 3rd consecutive year!
This extra virgin olive oil comes from olives typically found high in the Chianti hills, which are rich in limestone soils. By nature, these trees produces very little fruit and produce a pulpy oil that is low in acidity, a distinctive enduring feature.
In the balance between flavor and delicacy, this oil represents the best of the Giacchi production and carries the D.O.P. label (protected denomination of origin). Giachi is a member of the Chianto Classico Consortium, which requires binding commitment and technical severity.
Visibly limpid, the oil has an intense golden yellow with subtle hues of green. It has a decisive, embracing aroma with elegant tones of artichoke, cardoon, lettuce and strong herbal whiffs of mint and rosemary. Its taste is fine and has personality, with hints of garden vegetables, black pepper and a distinctly almond finish. This finishing oil is bitter, strong and piquant.
It's ideal on antipasto of lentils, tuna salad, white meat marinades, grilled radicchio, artichoke soup, ribollita with black cabbage, first courses like ragù, grilled swordfish, roast game, grilled red meat, aged cheeses such as smoked mozzarella, provolone and caciocavallo.
