|Organic olive oil and "Poggio ai Santi"
The “Poggio ai Santi” Farm has planted 8 hectares of olive trees on the 22 hectares of its land which, situated on the spurs of the Tuscan hills, commands views of the sea towards the Isle of Elba. Production is entirely organic. The olive trees of this district, 150 metres above sea level, do not have to withstand the slightly harsher climatic conditions of the Tuscan interior or of Provence. Here in fact frosts are unknown. At present, 500 adult trees make it possible to obtain a modest annual yield of “Poggio ai Santi” olive oil of about 1,500 bottles containing either .75 of a litre or 1 litre. The 2,000 olive trees planted in 1997 (of five varieties) will allow us gradually to increase our production up to an annual level of 8,000 bottles.
