Leccio del Corno Olive Oil

The Leccio del Corno olive variety is a quintessential Tuscan gem, with its roots tracing back to San Casciano Val di Pesa (FI). Discovered in 1929 by Professor Morettini on the Corno farm in San Pancrazio, it derives its name from the holm oak (leccio) tree. This nomenclature was essential to distinguish it from other holm oak varieties. In no time, it captivated the hearts of numerous olive growers, and today, it graces olive groves across the entire country. This olive tree exhibits an expansive canopy with lush, and abundant foliage. It was our admiration for this unique variety that led us to acquire a grove of approximately 1,200 Leccio del Corno olive trees, all lovingly nurtured in the Polyconic Vase method. From this exceptional variety, we proudly present an olive oil highly revered for its intriguing spicy and balsamic aromas. .
