- Shipping Information
In 1989, the first bottling of Laudemio was made according to a new code of laws (similar to those set forth for winemaking) that governed and improved olive oil production in central Tuscany. It is crafted from the purest cold-pressing of perfectly whole Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino olives from the Frescobaldi family’s property in the hills surrounding Florence. Frescobaldi selects only the finest extra virgin olive oil to become Laudemio—a quintessential finishing oil that should be the centerpiece of every dinner table. Olive cultivars: Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Leccino
Laudemio Frescobaldi 2020 is remarkably emerald green and brilliant as a real jewel. It has elegant aromas of green olives and green apples, and it is loaded with scents of fresh greens, such as wild arugula. The taste is decidedly Tuscan: lots of artichoke, kale, and cardoon. It is very clean and has an outstanding herbal bitterness on the palate with a longlasting pleasant spiciness.
The Frescobaldi family had the vision to create the Laudemio Consortium in 1989 after a devastating frost. Applying to olives their experience gained from centuries of grape growing, they helped develop a new level of extra virgin olive oil production by emphasizing the concept of terroir.
Italian ceramics are heirloom quality products, and can last lifetime with proper care. We have some suggestions that will preserve your majolica for years to come.
Majolica is dishwasher safe, but many people choose to hand wash their pieces as a precaution. Because majolica is a porous material, some pieces are not meant to hold liquid for a long period of time. Check for warning labels before ordering a product, as the pieces that are most notorious for "sweating" are appropriately labeled.
Majolica is sensitive to extreme temperatures, specifically boiling or freezing liquids. Pouring water with a rolling boil directly into a teapot, for example, may lead to breakage. To avoid this, temper the object. The industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius (1,148 degrees Fahrenheit). Quench the glass to cool it.
Crazing is common in well used majolica. The tiny cracks in the glaze do not affect the functionality of your majolica.
Majolica hand-crafted products should not be microwaved, as it may crack and/or break the ceramics.
