Our organic EVOO monovarietal Tosca (Lot T11) is obtained from olive trees that are about 4 years old.
The olives used to produce this EVOO have been harvested from the trees highlighted in the below map:
The novel variety Tosca comes from a genetic improvement program carried out by Attilio Sonnoli and based on the Urano variety. This olive tree has a spherical and very dense canopy, and it does not exceed 3 meters. The leaves have an elliptical, symmetrical shape, with a dark green upper side and a gray-green lower side. This variety is characterized by very high energy efficiency (120 – 150 grams of oil per cubic meter of canopy), it is very resistant to cold, drought and wet soils. Blooming and ripening are early, about a week before the Leccino. Used as a dwarfing rootstock, it reduces by 30% water needs when compared to traditional olive trees. This makes it particularly suitable in dry areas or where the presence of water is minimal.
The Tosca variety produces a green-gold oil, with a balanced flavor profile between various sweet-ripe and green-fresh sensations, with clear hints of artichoke and green olive, harmonized with those of apple and ripe olive [source: www.vivaisonnoli.it].
