Autumn colors and Olive Harvest

autunno-montalcino

The landscape is dressed with the beautiful autumn colors, and olive harvest to produce our Extra Virgin Olive Oil continues.  As the mix of colors forms a beautiful tapestry, an array of varietals are picked for our oil:  Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Leccino and a little bit of Olivastra.  Many of the trees are over 100 years old.  These older trees and the select blend creates a full bodied and full flavored oil.

 

Until yesterday temperatures were much above the average for the season but now, after the rain we had last night, a strong Tramontana wind is blowing from the north and it has dried the soils and has brought temperatures back to the average.
