Laudemio is the name given to oil bottled under the Consortium of Olive Growers of Central Tuscany. The consortium aims to produce the highest quality oil so the growers must adhere to strict standards to be permitted to bottle their oil under the Laudemio label. Frescobaldi’s Laudemio is a unique and robust extra virgin olive oil, crafted from carefully selected Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino olives from the family’s property near Florence, and only the best oil is selected to become Laudemio. It has elegant aromas of green olives and green apples, and it’s loaded with scents of fresh greens, such as wild arugula. The taste is decidedly Tuscan: lots of artichoke, thistle, kale, cardoon, and other green vegetables. It is very clean and has an outstanding herbal bitterness on the palate with a long-lasting pleasant spiciness.
