2020 Harvest Notes
Laudemio Frescobaldi 2020 is remarkably emerald green and brilliant as a real jewel. It is crafted from the purest cold-pressing of perfectly whole Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino olives from the family’s property in the hills surrounding Florence. It has elegant aromas of green olives and green apples, and it’s loaded with scents of fresh greens, such as wild arugula. The taste is decidedly Tuscan: lots of artichoke, thistle, kale, cardoon, and other green vegetables. It is very clean and has an outstanding herbal bitterness on the palate with a long-lasting pleasant spiciness. The Laudemio is truly sparkling green!
The Frescobaldi family has been at the heart of political, commercial and cultural life of Florence since the Middle Ages, and the name Frescobaldi is synonymous with quality and tradition. The family has been making wine and olive oil since the Renaissance, and in 1986, Bona Frescobaldi was responsible for conceiving and creating the Laudemio Consortium of olive oil makers, a governing group that ensures quality and origin. The Frescobaldi family company currently manages 11,000 acres of agricultural land in Tuscany, of which about 2,000 are vineyards and 600 are olive groves.
