Autumn in Tuscany also means new, freshly squeezed olive oil. The olive tree is an icon of the Tuscan landscape, along with cypresses, vineyards and hills. Between late October and early November the olive harvest takes place in Tuscany, a very ancient ritual that has been repeated for thousands of years. In this period, in fact, the olive reaches the right maturation (veraison), changing its color from green to black.

The extra virgin olive oil is a fruit juice, pure juice obtained from the simple pressing of the olives, so it seems easy, instead …
We asked the Torciano oil craftsmen to tell us all the fundamentals that make the difference. All the rest is experience and trade secrets!

1. the olives: healthy, firm and at the right degree of ripeness that changes depending on the variety, exposure to the sun, altitude, climate …
2. the harvest: from the plant and never from the ground, the olives must be detached from the branches avoiding traumas which, by damaging them, would activate fermentative processes.
3. transport: the olives must arrive in the fresh mill, within a few hours of harvesting, in perforated containers (not in the bags) that guarantee the ventilation.
4. preparation: the olives must be defoliated and washed thoroughly to remove dust, soil and other external agents that could alter taste and smell.
5. the milling: in addition to the technological aspects (many mills adopt modern systems with continuous cycle), the cleaning of the crusher and the processing in quick times and at low temperatures are decisive.
6. storage: in suitable and well-washed containers stored in rooms without odors, away from light and at a controlled temperature. When the oil is not filtered it will have to be “changed”, thus avoiding that it remains in contact with the sediments.
