FRANTOIO FRANCI AWARDS
Founded in 1958, Frantoio Franci is set in Montenero d’Orcia, a small hilltop town on the slopes of the Amiata Mountains, overlooking the splendid valley of the River Orcia. In that year the brothers Franco and Fernando Franci purchased the famous Villa Magra olive grove proceeding to transform the old barn into an oil-mill.
The oils - The Selections
This was born in 1996 Villa Magra dei Franci , the first extra virgin olive oil of the mill marketed in bottles and produced exclusively with olives from the olive grove of the same name. To the concept of quality is added those of selection , interpretation and terroir . Villa Magra, the intense fruity, becomes the company's flag and will be the progenitor of the other eight labels.
In 1997 the first production of the light fruity fruit was released, Olivastra Seggianese , the single variety produced from the centuries-old olive groves of Monte Amiata; then in '99 the medium fruity Le Trebbiane makes its appearance , which at the first opportunity wins the first of the three Golden Lions that will be assigned to the mill.
