Rose Grand Cru Seggiano Olive Oil is one of the 3 Grand Cru produced by Frantoio Franci, one of Italy’s most awarded olive oil producers in Montenero d’Orcia, in Tuscany. It is produced from a small dedicated grove from the Olivastra variety, which offers unique floral scents with a hint of rose. It is a mild premium extra virgin olive oil with a unique sensory profile. We recommend it with delicate dishes, seafood such as oysters and vegetables.
It is produced by Frantoio Franci, one of Italy’s most renowned olive oil producers. The farm, based near Montalcino in Montenero d’Orcia is currently managed by Giorgio Franci, having taken over from his father Fernando. The mill quickly became famous through its flagship Villa Magra Grand Cru, which has long been regarded as the pioneer on the segment of olive oils of the highest quality. Frantoio Franci progressively expanded its range to cover a large selection of oil form delicate to intense. It is one of of the most awarded olive oil producers in Italy and has received the highest score of 98 in 2017 by Flos Olei, the international olive oil guide.
