A perfect climate, the passion for nature and organic agricolture, the special care for the olive trees make "Vicopisanolio" a first quality extra virgin olive oil. The oil is from the hills, at the slope of Monte Pisano, looking the medieval borgo of Vicopisano famous for its pieve and for its towers, especially for the Brunelleschi ones. Here the organic farm "Frantoio di Vicopisano" owns 2500 olive trees of frantoio variety. The olives are hand picked at the perfect ripeness and they never touch the ground. they are crushed, within the same day of the harvest, at the oil mill "Antico frantoio toscano del Rio Grifone" that is inside the farm which is the most ancient and at the same time, the most modern mill of the area. The olives are here cold pressed and the oil is then filtered and analized in order to verify the quality parameters: acidity, peroxides and polyphenols. After the storage in stainless steel containers, to protect the oil from air and light, at a controlled temperature, the oil is bottled.
