Extra Virgin Olive Oil
800 olive trees adorn the Corral de Tierra estate of Tom Russell, owner of De Tierra Vineyards. These trees, include six different varieties of Tuscan olives: Frantoio, Pendolino, Moraiolo, Canino, Leccino and Luca, that are cultivated organically. The olives of each healthy tree are harvested by hand to protect the fruit, keeping each variety separate. Each variety is pressed separately, just once, at cold temperatures, using an enormous traditional Pieraliti granite stone press imported from Italy. Once the olives have been pressed, they are left unfiltered to retain the robust flavor of the olives.
