We partnered with our friend Guido Gualandi to release a small lot of his organically farmed, full bodied Tuscan extra virgin olive oil.
It is a classic Tuscan EVOO with complex character and well-balanced grassiness and pungency.
Varietal(s): Frantoio, Moraiolo & Pendolino
Terroir: Montespertoli, Tuscany, Italy
Farming Method: Certified Organic
Harvest & Press Date: Oct 2020
In the rolling countryside of the Montespertoli region of Tuscany resides Guido Gualandi - archaeologist, painter, professor and producer of organic wine & extra virgin olive oil.
After years in the field studying Mesopotamian art and ancient Mediterranean agriculture, Guido established his podere (farm) outside of Florence with a resolute intention - to produce wine and extra virgin olive oil in accordance with the history beneath his feet.
Podere Gualandi pairs nicely with Bruschetta Rinforzata ~ a simple, delicious snack from Guido's family archives.
