Its location about four miles from the sea, with its high level of around 90m., gives it a special microclimate suitable for the cultivation of grapes and olives.
The extravergin Tuscan olive oil produced by the IGP Poderevignanova Barsotti, is yellow with greenish tones.
The nose is very elegant, the scent of white fruit and vegetable tones.
The taste is balanced with hints of artichoke plants and grass. The finish is slightly spicy with a pleasant bitterness.
The company are cultivated on land about 900 plants with the traditional system, with the typical Tuscan varieties, namely:
- frantoiana (40%)
- leccino (35%)
