Olio del Capùnto
Frutto e orgoglio delle nostre terre
We want to be able to say "I made it!" with all the pride and commitment to offer an exceptional olive oil. That's why we decided to manage the whole process of the olive oil making and delivery. Our companies grow the olive trees, mill their fruits and pack the oil, right to the moment when it is delivered to your doorstep.
"Olive oil is one of the four most essential things for man's life"
Statute of Siena – 1428
Tuscany is probably the greatest land for olive oil, and Siena gives birth to some of the very best Tuscan olive oils.
We're not the only ones to declare it: our product undergoes several controls to be compliant with the procedural guideline of the Consortium for the protection of Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil IGP.That means that we have to guarantee that our olive oil is entirely made in Tuscany. You can check it yourself!
Each bottle of PGI Toscano Olio del Capùnto bears a mark with a unique code, which encloses everything you need to know about that very olive oil you're holding. You just need to type in the code on the traceability page on the Consortium's website.
It's our olive oil: Made in Italy, from plantation to harvest
The harvest in our olive groves usually starts in mid-October. Moving fast is essential to take advantage of this time of the year when the olive is not too ripe and gives its best. Using innovative harvesting systems makes it easy for us to harvest and mill them within 12 hours.
When the olives get to the mill they are worked in a controlled atmosphere and only by mechanical means. Melting our 40-year-long experience and the latest technologies, we are able to create an exceptional olive oil, both for its nutritional and taste properties.
The body, the aroma and the precious organoleptic features of the Extra virgin olive oil Olio del Capùnto earned us several prizes. An undeniable sign of its superior quality.

I nostri oli
We only grow olive trees in the area around Siena, where hills reach an altitude between 200 and 400 metres.
The cultivars farmed are all included in the procedural guideline of the Consortium for the Protection of Tuscan Olive Oil. The fruits must be harvested at the minimum of their ripeness, that's why we start on mid-October.
Olives are harvested mechanically with an electric shaker and by shaking the trunk in the specialized olive plantation, while in the intensive plantations we do over-the-row harvesting. Extraction is performed in a low-temperature ambiance and in a very short time after harvesting. The olive oil is stored in stainless steel, vacuum-sealed tins and, finally, packed in opaque, noble gas-filled tins, so as to avoid contact with oxygen and preserve its quality in time.
