Pornanino Olives

On the rolling hills of the Black Rooster area, in the very heart of Chianti, between Radda, Castellina and Vagliagli sits Pornanino, a lovingly restored biological olive oil estate surrounded by 36 hectares of olive groves and wooded hills. The rivers Arbia and Serchio mark the boundaries.

Sun, stone, drought, silence and solitude: these are the five ingredients that, according to Italian folk traditions, create the ideal habitat for the olive tree. We treasure extra virgin olive oil for its nutritional and salutary virtues. The extra virgin olive oil is the most digestible of the edible fats, it helps to assimilate vitamins A, D and K. It contains so-called essential acids that slows down the aging process helping vascular and intestinal functions.
