The Giachi family firm is located in the hills of Mercatale Val di Pesa in the Florentine part of the Chianti Classico zone; the family has been involved in the olive oil trade for generations, concentrating on high quality extra-virgin olive oil. This attention to quality and to reasonable prices has gained much recognition for the firm. We have never been carried away by commercial success, because our primary objective has always been to give a high level product which expresses both the territory of the olives from which it has been made and an able pressing and conservation. The firm is family-owned and operated, with everyone passionately involved in this marvellous product, an essential part of the Tuscan tradition, one whose use - particularly in the kitchen - still needs to be better known and appreciated. Quality olive oil gives richer flavours, is more digestible, and is better for the health as well.

"COLLE DEL GIACHI" - Extra Virgin Olive Oil D.O.P. Chianti Classico
This oil comes from olives typically found high in the Chianti hills, rich in limestone soils where the plant, by nature, produces very little fruit and a pulpy oil that is low in acidity, a distinctive enduring feature. In the balance between flavour and delicacy, this oil represents the best of the Giacchi production and carries the D.O.P. label (protected denomination of origin); hence we are members of the Chianto Classico Consortium, which requires binding commitment and technical severity.
Visibly limpid, the oil is an intense golden yellow with subtle hues of green. It has a decisive, embracing aroma with elegant tones of artichoke, cardoon, lettuce and strong herbal whiffs of mint and rosemary. Its taste is fine and has personality, with hints of garden vegetables, black pepper and a distinctly almond finish. Bitter, strong and piquant, it is ideal on antipasto of lentils, tuna salad, white meat marinades, grilled radicchio, artichoke soup, ribollita with black cabbage, first courses like ragù, grilled swordfish, roast game, grilled red meat, aged cheeses such as smoked mozzarella, provolone and caciocavallo.
