The Giachi family firm is located in the hills of Mercatale Val di Pesa in the Florentine part of the Chianti Classico zone; the family has been involved in the olive oil trade for generations, concentrating on high quality extra-virgin olive oil. This attention to quality and to reasonable prices has gained much recognition for the firm. We have never been carried away by commercial success, because our primary objective has always been to give a high level product which expresses both the territory of the olives from which it has been made and an able pressing and conservation. The firm is family-owned and operated, with everyone passionately involved in this marvellous product, an essential part of the Tuscan tradition, one whose use - particularly in the kitchen - still needs to be better known and appreciated. Quality olive oil gives richer flavours, is more digestible, and is better for the health as well.

"PRIMOLIO" – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This oil is extracted from the main cultivar of olives grown in the Florentine hills that are harvested manually and mechanically from end October to the first ten days in November. Cold pressing cold is done immediately in frantoio, to maintain the fresh, pure aspects coming from unripe, green olives. The oil is low in acidity, with an excellent zesty taste. It is
kept in a cool place and cotton-filtered, before distributing onto the market, to prevent any natural deposit which might otherwise alter its excellent inherent features. As ever, this oil puts us in a class apart and continues to bring us widespread acclaim from all over the world. Gourmets would say: “Once we get used to good olive oil ………”.
Visibly limpid, the oil is an intense golden yellow with pale green nuances. The ample, embracing aroma comes with elegant vegetal notes of artichoke, wild cardoon, celery, lettuce and strong herbal hints of rosemary and field balm. Its taste is fine, and has personality, endowed with tones of green tomato and a dried fruit finish. Bitter and piquant, decisive and well-balanced, it is excellent on bean salads, fresh salmon, octopus marinade, mushroom soups, first courses with clams or mussels, roast fish, grilled red meats and hard mature cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino.
