The Pornanino Extra -Virgin Olive oil (EVOO) is a 100% guaranteed top quality, pure unblended natural product, from untreated olive trees. It is thus free of chemical fertilizers and preservatives. The olives are picked from four different types of olive trees such as Frantoio, Pendolino, Moraiolo and Leccino, which give the Pornanino Extra-Virgin Olive oil its distinct, unique flavor. The olive groves are located at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level, to ensure healthy, tasty olives. After picking, the olives are cold pressed in a traditional stone mill in order to preserve the olives' perfect taste. Each single process, from taking care of the olive groves to hand picking, to cold pressing is supervised by the Lombardi family, in their oil mill or “frantoio” where the bottling also takes place.
Who we are?
Located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area in Tuscany, the Pornanino Olive Oil estate is a family-run operation owned by Francesca and Matteo that continues the long held dream of Lia and Franco Lombardi which was to “retire” in Chianti after working elsewhere. As totally committed and enthusiastic producers, the Lombardi family takes great pride in the quality of their extra virgin olive oil. We care for our olive trees ourselves, hand harvest the olives and cold press them within hours in our own press, then bottle the extra virgin olive oil and ship it directly to a selected clientele of gourmet friends around the world.
