FOOD GEMS – EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil

DURATION:
Duration on-site (hours. ±1): 5

You will be welcomed upon your arrival in the “Enoteca” in the heart of the Chianti Classico village, Greve in Chianti, by Dr. Giacomo Grassi, Ph.D. in Agronomic Sciences.

Giacomo is the last descendant of the Grassi family and continues the family agricultural tradition that dates back to the olive growers’ licenses granted to the Grassi by the Medici of Florence in 1563 !!!

We are convinced that there are no equally renowned oil producers in the world today.

After all, Giacomo holds the honor of his family and of its history very high, stubbornly producing only single variety oils, convinced that only in this way can their various characteristics be fully appreciated.

Experts around the world prove him right by awarding him an endless list of medals every year.
