We would like to thank everyone for reading and following our olive oil posts this year. We are very proud of our olive oil at Tenuta Il Poggione and we are displeased that we cannot let you "taste" it on our blog!
Herewith is that which was written by the Rare Wine Company of Sonoma in the California about our wine:
"Ever since our first visit to the estate in 1988, we've been great admirers of Il Poggione's olive oil. This venerable Brunello producer has long made an oil whose price-quality rapport is nearly unparalleled. But since installing its new state-of-the-art frantoio in 2004, its oil is now one of the top extra virgins of Tuscany, regardless of price. Il Poggione's real prize, however, is their cache of old olive trees planted at elevations up to 500 meters".
