Solely from the Frantoio olive variety - the real king of these Tuscan hills, Vicopisano is a masterpiece of Tuscan olive oil culture, an extra virgin olive oil for true olive oil lovers. The Bovoli family takes care year-round of their historically organically farmed olive groves. While the work in the field is painstakingly manual, their mill, the Antico Frantoio Toscano di Rio Grifone, is accessorized with the most modern technology.
The close distance between the mill and the groves allows squeezing the carefully selected olives fresh and at the perfect stage of maturity. This way, every harvest of Vicopisano reconfirms its vibrant, uniquely vigorous essence.
