This elegant extra virgin olive oil elevates a range of dishes, from mashed potatoes and thinly sliced roast beef to minestrone and ribollita. It pairs beautifully with any preparation of greens, hot or cold, such as kale salad or steamed spinach or chard.

Capezzana is a gorgeous, delicate-to-medium-intensity olive oil that will appeal to a wide range of taste preferences. Its green notes are beautifully restrained, with an aroma of ripe apple and hints of artichoke rounded out with a nuttiness—especially hazelnuts—that lingers on the palate. It’s a profile that will be friendly to all kinds of dishes, sure to elevate everything coming from your kitchen.

The Contini Bonacossi family has always employed the latest techniques in their prestigious wine and olive oil making. Olives are crushed within 12–24 hours of picking, which reduces the risk of oxidation due to olive fermentation, and extracted using a state-of-the-art continuous cycle press (a technique that eliminated the traditional pressing of the pulp with nets).

Bottling is still done entirely by hand, four bottles at a time. Capezzana's incredible oil rarely exceeds 0.2% oleic acid, which gives the oil great longevity.

Region: Carmignano, Tuscany
Olive varietals: Moraiolo, Frantoio, Pendolino and Leccino
Estate-bottled


Use this olive oil as Countess Lisa Contini Bonacossi did: in everything.
The late matriarch of the Contini Bonacossi family was hailed as "Italy's best home cook" by Marcella Hazan in her book Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. 

The secret to Lisa's success was not only in her multi-course menus of simple, seasonal dishes, but also in her abundant use of Capezzana olive oil (make her delicious Torta di Capezzana, which you can also serve for breakfast). Today, her daughter Beatrice carries the torch, and sharing a meal at Capezzana is still one of Italy's greatest pleasures.
