About the Producer:
Dievole (pronounced Dee-Ev-Oh-Lay) began making wine in the year 1090 but records of the first milling of olive oil date back "only" to 1387. Dievole has olive trees in Tuscany and throughout Italy. This priceless heritage of genetically unique plants, often handed down throughout the centuries, is the starting point for developing a product line of high-quality extra virgin olive oil with a strong identity.
At harvest time, each production batch has its own ID card, guaranteeing absolute traceability to ensure the full expression of a given territory, whether related to DOP Chianti Classico, the Tuscan IGP or a 100% Italian oil.
