Mezzecrete Società Agricola A R.L.
Olio Nece is an extra virgin olive oil “Terre di Siena” P.D.O. which is made from the cold pressing of olives rigorously from our farm. The P.D.O. certification secures that cultivars have been selected to represent the finest Tuscanness (42% Leccino, 27% Frantoio, 20% Moraiolo, 11% Pendolino). In order to minimize acidity, olives are pressed within 24 hours from harvest, which is anticipated to mid October. This practice generates a low returning yield by weight in oil, but an excellent quality with acidity just around 0.20%: as a matter of fact Olio Nece was granted a Gold Award in the 2017 New York International Olive Oil Competition, the world’s most important olive oil contest.

About Mezzecrete Societã Agricola A R.L.:
Owned by Mezzecrete, Agricola Neci is located in the heart of the Tuscan Crete Senesi, South East of Siena. The property covers 642 acres of cultivations, forests and olive groves along the Ombrone river. Historically committed to farming cereals, sunflowers and legumes, the company entered the premium olive oil business in 2004 by planting 19 acres of olive trees. Trees were selected in line with the standards required by the “Terre di Siena” P.D.O Consortium, which aims to safeguard extra virgin olive oil made in the area of Siena from counterfeit Tuscan oil. Today Olio Nece is Mezzecrete’s high end product as well as the company’s pride after being constantly included in the world’s most important guidebooks for olive oil as well as being granted top awards in olive oil contests internationally.Visit Website
