Pietre al Monte
More About Pietre al Monte
From their private estate nestled among the cypress trees in the heart of Chianti in Tuscany, Pietre al Monte creates some of the most exclusive, exquisite extra virgin olive oils in the world. The estate is situated on lands inhabited since before 400 CE, and the company continues to restore ancient stone buildings on the land, with goal of transforming the space into a sanctuary for countryside living.
Restoring and expanding ancient olive groves remains another high priority, as the region’s soils and microclimate combine to create the ideal conditions for producing pristine olives. All farm labor is done by hand following traditional and natural methods, with the olives crushed using a cold extraction process that results in pure, intense, pungent oils full of polyphenols and antioxidants. The oils of Pietre al Monte are truly a Tuscan treasure.
