DetailsIn Florence, the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi family name is synonymous with quality and tradition. The dynasty has been making wine and olive oil since the Reniassance, and in 1986, Bona Frescobaldi was responsible for conceiving of and creating the Laudemio Consortium of olive oil makers. 2015 Tasting Notes: What a Tuscan olive oil! This is a sophisticated oil for the connoisseur, with a complex aroma of soft and loud notes held in equal balance. On the nose, there is a hint of cinnamon and eucalyptus. The taste is bitter, green, and spicy—like taking a healthy bite of a raw artichoke heart—and as tannic as a big structured wine. The color is unreal, like an emerald; the cut of the bottle emphasizes this jewel-like quality. Their best in many years.
