First-quarter awards 2021 for Principe Corsini wines and olive oils

The awards for the quality of Principe Corsini wine and olive oil

Passion and tradition have always been guiding our production. For this reason, when the quality of wines and olive oils is acknowledged by some prestigious awards, we have the confirmation that the commitment we dedicate to our work year after year is really worth it.

Obtaining such high recognition is a great reward for the company and its collaborators, and it represents the right drive towards an excellent quality production in total respect for the environment, the territory, and seasonality.

Frantoio and Moraiolo DOP Oils awarded by Gambero Rosso

The 2020 olive oil campaign, characterized by excellent quality and quantity of the olives, has brought outstanding fruits: artichoke, almond, balsamic notes of cut grass are some of the scents that distinguish the aromatic texture of the Best oils of Tuscany in 2020.

In addition to EVO and DOP Oil, at Villa Le Corti we have also produced two varieties of organic monovarietal DOP Oil: Moraiolo and Frantoio. Both of them have obtained important recognition, becoming part of the “Oli d’Italia 2021 Guide” by Gambero Rosso, including the best 100% Made in Italy extra virgin olive oils.

Oli d’Italia 2021 Guide by Gambero Rosso

For over ten years, the prestigious Gambero Rosso magazine has been releasing a guide that assorts the best extra virgin olive oils produced in Italy: a tool to promote this great product and its millennial tradition.

“Every oil is the result of a territory, a crusher, different cultivars. A thousand nuances of aromas and flavors to be known and recognized. To enhance and enhance every dish. Every day. For the pleasure of the palate and the good of health.”

Two leaves for Frantoio Dop oil and two red leaves for Moraiolo Dop oil
