Castello di Cacchiano Olive Oil

A famous Tuscan wine estate's excellent olive oil.

If you like your extra virgin olive oil fruity and grassy with a slap of pepper in the finish, then Castello di Cacchiano is for you. This is the oil you should reach for when you want a full-flavored oil with an awesome kick.

It's made from a blend of Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Leccino, Pendolino and other typically Tuscan olives, hand picked from the 4,700 or so trees that dot the terraced hills around the castle at the center of the property. The total output per year is about 4,000 liters. That's less than one liter per tree. This is special oil.

Made in the Chianti Classico region according to the strict D.O.P. (Protected Designation of Origin) rules of that area. Zingerman's is the exclusive source of this oil in the United States.

The 2017 harvest oil has an incredibly vibrant, yellow-green highlighter color. That vibrancy comes through in the flavor of the oil, too, which has a citrusy, hoppy brightness in balance with intense bitter flavors like endive and arugula. The finish has a bold peppery kick.
