This label is the emblem of Pruneti production. Its name comes from the really first plot of land of Pruneti family, to underline how tradition and territory are important for Paolo and Gionni. The most modern and performing machines and the constant research for quality make Viuzzo an absolutely unique oil that is continuously improving. Through the blend of the most typical mono-cultivar of Chianti Classico Gionni and Paolo want to “take a picture” of the harvest: changing always the percentages of Leccino, Moraiolo and Frantoio makes possible to obtain always the perfect balance. The result is a blend that every year achieves many international awards: it is described by the experts as the symbol of high quality in the world of olive oil.
Oil of strong intensity both in the perception of bitter and spicy; very balanced, with clear notes of fresh vegetables, fruit and spices.
The PRUNETI Company is made up of 80 hectares of olive groves on which there are around 25,000 plants, 5 hectares of vineyards, 4 hectares of iris and some plots of land reserved for the cultivation of saffron. All the land is cultivated by organic means. The first production site is the family’s farmhouse, situated close to the production land, in San Polo in Chianti. The oil mill was built in 2009 due to Paolo and Gionni Pruneti’s will to personally manage all phases of production. The new facility was expanded in 2013 and now stands at more than 1,000 m2. It is completely dedicated to production: mill, storage and bottling line. In 2010 the “Oil-Tasting Room” was built next to the mill: a space entirely dedicated to knowledge and promotion of extra-virgin olive oil, which is achieved through tastings and events.
