Our extra virgin olive oil

Our cooperative oil mill is located in Vinci on the hills of Montalbano, in the heart of Tuscany. Since more than 50 years our farmers work with renewed passion to preserve a unique land, always devoted to the olive growing production and birthplace of one of the greatest Italians: Leonardo Da Vinci.

The unrepeatable combination of different characteristics such as climate, olive varieties, tradition, experience, production techniques are determining for the quality and the flavour of the extra virgin olive oil produced on the Montalbano hills.

Molino della Doccia” is the true expression of this land: a Tuscan extra virgin olive oil produced and bottled in Tuscany exclusively by Tuscan olives, cultivated in the protected geographical indication area of “Montalbano”.

The project: integrated olive growing

“Molino Della Doccia” extra virgin olive oil is produced only by 230/250 farmers of the Cooperative involved in a special ECO- COMPATIBLE PROJECT: Integrated Farming.

It’s an eco-compatible olive growing project aiming to develop enviromental care and alimentary safety reducing agricoltural chemicals and supervising every steps of the production from the pressing to the bottling.

The farmers involved in this project have let 800 hectares of land available with 200.000 olive trees. All these olive trees are GMO-free.

Our farmers comply with all parts of a “Product Specification, which regulates the whole “chain”; from caring for the plants and the land where they are grown, to exclusive hand picking, trasport to the oil mill and packaging. The work of the farmers is constantly supervised by agronomists appointed by the Cooperative.

The Cooperative Oil Mill

trasparente

The high number of typical olives varieties farmed, the exclusive hand picking and the promptly cold extraction , are the factors determining the harmonius, fruity and balanced flavour of our extra virgin olive oil.The olives are pressed within 48 hours from the picking time, otherwise they will ferment and give a more acid and less quality extra virgin olive oil.

The olives are pressed in our oil mills in Vinci (Florence) and Lamporecchio (Pistoia)  with processes that allow our extra virgin olive oil to be classified as “cold extracted”.

The  farmers of the Cooperative Oil Mill Montalbano keep on producing the extra virgin olive oil with the same passion and care used in the past. Thanks to the scrupolous and meticulous work, they obtain an extremely high quality extra virgin olive oil, respecting their fathers’ and granfathers’ traditions: more than 60 years of renewed passion, to preserve a land in the heart of Tuscany with unique characteristics.
