In the Pruneti post-covid strategy, the extravirgin olive oil becomes “pret a porter”: High quality monocultivars in 20ml mini-bottles (a single dose) to meet the needs of restaurateurs and treat the customers personalized gourmet experiences “During the lockdown we have all had more time to devote to cooking and preparing meals for the family, being more attentive to the selection of ingredients, because, today more than ever, it is important to be aware that health and well-being starts at the table and extravirgin olive oil is an essential element of our diet,” Gionni Pruneti points out. “The second phase permits us to move, go back to work and go back to having meals outside in bars, restaurants or takeaway establishments,” underlines Paolo Pruneti. “It’s better not to lose good habits. So we thought of offering all restaurateurs , bars and bistros – that must comply with specific safety protocol – the possibility to simultaneously offer a superior quality experience to their customers with single-dose formats from the Pruneti monocultivar selection: Leccino, Moraiolo, Frantoio or the Viuzzo blend” The 20ml Pruneti monocultivar collection will be available for restaurateurs (also in a private label version) and private customers who want to bring their own oil for a perfect match wherever it is they decide to dine, whether it is a 4 starred restaurants or merely a salad eaten during the lunch break at the office. “The Pruneti Monocultivar 20ml completes the collection of 100ml, 250ml and 500ml bottles that are already available for clients wishing to personalize their own private label. We celebrate how in recent years we have collaborated with restaurateurs who seek to offer the very best to their customers – customers who are looking for real gourmet experiences – with the creation of a personalized “Olio Evo” and the design of proper combinations with their menus. Our aim is to give a sense of exclusivity and personalization to their dishes with a precious and essential ingredient such as Pruneti Extra Virgin Olive Oil which adds fresh, herbaceous and vegetable aromas and flavors that are otherwise impossible to find”.
It is a superior category of olive oil obtained directly from olives and is extracted by solely mechanical means. It may contain free acidity expressed as oleic acid at a maximum of 0.8g per 100g and must be free of organoleptic defects.
There are organoleptic properties that, through professional tasting, permit us to distinguish an excellent extra virgin olive oil from one of medium industrial production. Contrary to common belief, the color of an extra virgin olive oil is not a guarantee of its quality.
To produce an excellent extra virgin olive oil, it is not enough to just have the raw material and production machinery. What is essential is the expertise, the specific knowledge, integration of new technologies and then a lot of passion. For this reason, for over 160 years, 365 days a year, we take care of our 30,000 olive trees in the heart of Chianti Classico, and we produce extra virgin olive oil following a 100% Pruneti production chain. Each phase of the production is carefully controlled in every single detail: from the harvesting and care of the fields to the pressing and bottling, to the sale to the Pruneti consumer.
The natural oxidation process of extra virgin olive oil causes the disappearance of the aromas and flavors that characterize it. This is known as the aging of the oil. It is not possible to eliminate this process, but to ensure our customers a product that maintains the organoleptic properties for as long as possible we use dark glass bottles. We also preserve the extra virgin olive oil under nitrogen to eliminate oxygen. In addition, after pressing, the oil is filtered and exposure to sources of heat and light is avoided.
A bottle of extra virgin olive oil must be kept away from light, air and heat sources. This helps preserve its nutritional and organoleptic integrity. To make sure that our oil remains unchanged until the moment of opening, we use a nitrogen bottling line that injects a minimum amount inside each bottle. Additionally, we pack our extra virgin olive oil inside dark colored bottles or special light-filtering packaging.
In the SHOP section we have created filters that can guide you in purchasing the extra virgin olive oil that best suits your tastes and those of your loved ones.
No, extra virgin olive oil is a food characterized by natural, fresh and herbaceous aromas and flavors.
