The extra virgin olive oil "Argento" (Silver) was born on the slopes of Monte Amiata, 350 m above sea level in an area rich in history, scents and flavors where Nature gives Man prestigious varieties of plants and olives.
The organic production (certified by Q Certificazioni) gives the genuineness of this extra virgin olive oil, supported by the pedoclimatic features of Monte Amiata that allow to produce without chemical components due to weather and land that favor the growing of the olive tree;
It's produced in the farm mill with innovative methods that allows the preservation of all the flavors of the olives using renewable sources to produce it. "Argento" is prepared by following an accurate field selection of the perfect point of growing for the four varieties composing the blend: the famous Olivastra Seggianese, Frantoio, Leccino and Correggiolo are all coming from the classic Tuscan tradition.
This combination is a secret study from Davide Borselli the olive oil maker, the perfect time picking, the right percentage of the four varieties combination, the right time and temperature during the extraction.
By the name you can imagine the elegance and importance of that oil produced with great care and respect for the environment by its creators Family Borselli.
