Bramasole Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Direct from Under The Tuscan Sun
Bramasole’s olives are grown in Cortona, near the border of Umbria and Tuscany, where they’re hand-picked each October at Villa Bramasole. In a romantic twist, the estate is owned and operated by American writer Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun. The olives are sent to a mill about 15 minutes away, where they’re pressed in a matter of hours. Robust and peppery, the oil has a spicy character that kicks in the back of the throat and the color of melted emeralds that oleologists (the official title of olive oil testers) love. Bramasole has won gold, silver, or best in class at the international olive oil awards the last four years.

"I have been fortunate to visit Frances & Ed Mayes at Bramasole in Cortona and see the olive trees up close, a day I will not forget." - Patti Fortuna
