Many of our valued wine producers from around the globe also produce exceptional artisan foodstuffs, which we’ve enjoyed during our travels and visits to wine regions over the past two decades. We’ve long wanted to import some of these delicacies into Canada, and with this trio of special extra virgin olive oils from Toscana’s Tenuta Fanti, we’re realizing the dream of Le Sommelier Provisions.
The Tenuta Fanti estate has belonged to the Fanti family since the beginning of the eighteenth century. It extends across 300 hectares in Toscana, 52 hectares of which are certified sustainable vineyards, 110 hectares are olive orchards, 80 hectares are used for seed plots, and 70 hectares are forests.
Tenuta Fanti boasts over 8,500 olive trees of the most prestigious Tuscan varieties and a traditional olive stone mill. Thanks to the high elevation of the trees, the early picking and the quick crushing of the olives, the oil is characterized by low acidity and a complex flavour profile.
Single bottles are available for purchase on our website here. We’ve also created a limited number of Fanti Olive Oil Mixed Cases, giving you the chance to try all three of the recently landed oils:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil. $28.95
This oil blends Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Leccino and Olivastra, from 15-200-year-old trees resting from 200-450 metres. These were crushed within 24 hours of harvest and extracted cool. Opalescent green in hue in youth, which tends to yellow with ageing. At present, this is intensely fruity with green tones across a lightly spicy palate.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil Moraiolo. $34.95
This oil is from Moraiolo olives, golden green in hue with an intensely fruity nose of green tones. The smooth palate continues the green artichoke note, with a fine balance between bitter and spicy.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil Olivastra. $39.95
This oil is entirely Olivastra Seggianese, from 200 year old trees resting at 650m. These were crushed within 24 hours of harvest, and extracted cool. Gold in color with greenish flashes, this has a fruity nose and lightly sweet complexities on the palate, finishing with gentle spice.
Fanti Olive Oil Mixed Case: 3 bottles for $129.95 + HST.
The Mixed Case price includes delivery in the GTA, and most larger cities in Ontario. Prices outside of main cities may incur additional delivery charges.
