The Frescobaldi family owns about 300 hectares of olive groves between 200 and 500 meters above sea level where the microclimate gives the olives
unique characteristics for freshness and intensity of aromas and flavors. In October and never beyond November, the olives come
harvested early, before ripening, to capture the emerald green color and the aromatic freshness. Then, the olives,
they are always crushed in a few hours from the harvest, in the proprietary oil mill. These rules guarantee maximum excellence.
Frescobaldi makes a strict selection and only the highest quality extra virgin olive oil is selected to become
LAUDEMIO FRESCOBALDI 2019
“In medieval times, the name Laudemio indicated the part of the harvest reserved for the lord, owner of the land. TO
he was offered the best part of the harvest called "Laudemio", whose name has since been synonymous with value and
quality. Today Laudemio Frescobaldi represents the maximum expression of extra virgin olive oil. "
The winter was regular, with the typical cold and rainy days. Spring was characterized by an abnormal month of May,
in which both the low temperatures and the high rainfall have slowed down the oritura and consequently also the fruit set.
This caused a difference in the production of olives, with much quantities
important in areas around 200 meters above sea level, closest to Florence and scarcity
in hilly areas over 300 meters above sea level. Summer has been
particularly hot, and ensured very healthy olives, which started the
maturation in the first half of October, contextually at the beginning of the harvest.
