Quality and technology



A new modern plant with annexe laboratories of analysis covering a surface of 5200 sq. meters equipped by 4 filling lines with tanks and filling pipes suitable to each kind of oil which are able to guarantee a production over than 20.000 bottles per hour, in different capacities: 15ml, 30ml, 100ml, 250ml, 500ml, 750ml, 1lt, 3lt, 5lt (glass and tin).



A careful quality control on the filling lines is assured by employing the most modern equipment and technologies and by a team of people responsible of the bottling process constantly updated and formed during stages and courses.



The high quality standard of the pureness and genuineness is guaranteed by serious chemical, physical, organoleptic controls involving the complete production process (from the arrival at the plant of the oil in tank trucks to the bottling and at last packaging).


Azienda Olearia del Chianti - The Good Oil Does Exist!



Oli and Health



How to store properly extra virgin olive oil


Some recommendations are to be followed in order to preserve the freshness of the extra virgin olive oil: keep and store it in a dry cool place, away from direct light and heating sources.


In this way the oxidation process will be clearly retarded, consequently the freshness is guaranteed for much more time.


How to taste extra virgin olive oil


To recognize a good extra virgin olive oil we recommend to use it on a bread slice lightly roasted or boiled potatoes. Hot sensation enhances its merits (fruity taste, bitter almond, artichoke and grassy after-taste) or exalts imperfections (as rancid, mold, earthy).


Beneficial properties of the extra virgin olive oil


The extra virgin olive oil is a fundamental element of the Mediterranean diet and is synonymous of taste and health.


The extra virgin olive oil contains powerful antioxidants, vitamin E and polyphenol, substances that have the task of defending cells from early aging and from some tumor types..


Extra virgin olive oil is the best dressing due to the balanced fats since it is poor of saturated fat, which is the main cause of high blood cholesterol.


It is instead rich of monounsaturated fats (oleic acid) and it contains essential polyunsaturated fats W6 and W3. These fats are very similar to mother's milk and positively influence our bodies.
