In Medieval Europe, “Laudemio” was the best part of the harvest set aside for the feudal lord. Marchesi Antinori’s “Laudemio” is true to what its name implies: the finest part of the harvest from the olive groves on the Chianti estates, grown and produced exclusively to achieve high quality without making any compromises. Laudemio is a traditional extra virgin olive oil.

The olives, grown in carefully selected groves, were harvested exclusively by hand just before reaching peak ripeness and milled, without exception, within twelve hours from picking at the estate’s olive mill. The production cycle began with a vacuum-suction leaf removal and with milling by hammers; the olive paste was then broken up and worked for a period of ten to fifteen minutes at temperatures between 68-72 °Fahrenheit (20 and 22 °Centigrade), a phase in which the particles of oil began to coagulate and separate from the olive paste. The extraction phase, which operates with a decanter, then followed: the process was carried out at low temperatures and without the use of water in order to bring out all of the aromas and flavors of the “Laudemio” oil. The conservation and storage before bottling of the Laudemio olive oil took place in small stainless-steel containers under the protection of an inert gas and only after the approval of an expert commission selected just for this purpose. Finally, the “Laudemio” olive oil produced with this method went through a rigorous in-house selection aimed at guaranteeing the highest possible quality standards before being bottled at the firm’s olive mill in special and typical 500-millimeter bottles.
Tasting Characteristics of the Olive Oil
The 2019 Laudemio offers a brilliant and intense green color to the eye. The deep and persistent nose recalls olive which have just been crushed. The palate is elegant and fruity with a notable piquant note which tends to diminish over time.
