5000 plants of different varieties

The olive yards of the Cantagallo Estate has over 5000 olive plants. Such as Leccino, Frantoio and Moraiolo make the Extra Virgin Olive Oil Laudemio Cantagallo.
The olive harvest is usually made between the last week of October and the first 20 days of November. Considering that we have our own olive mill it considerably reduces the time that elapses between the harvest and the pressing (after only 4 hours the olive starts to ferment) which helps the quality of the produced oil. All of the production process – starting from the cultivation to the harvest, the pressing the filtering and the bottling is made in the Estate.

Cantagallo Estate is part of the Laudemio Association , born in 1986 in order to be able to improve, the originality and the quality of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced on the hills of central Tuscany. The objective is to identify and transform in rules the various phases of the cultivation, extraction and the manufacturing of the oil, just as the tradition has told us to do. Respecting these parameters is how the Extravergin Olive Oil Laudemio Cantagallo is made.
