For more than a quarter century, The Rare Wine Co. has earned a devoted following for our best-in-class Tuscan olive oils.

Since our first harvest in 1995, we haven't just guaranteed our clients single-estate oils. We've also focused on oils from individual groves (oliveti), varieties, and pressings. And we were very likely the first American oil importers to ship exclusively in temperature-controlled containers, as we do our wines.

Each fall, we're in the olive groves of Tuscany, tasting through scores of pressings at the region's best estates. While other importers are content phoning in their order for an innocuous blend of all the year's pressings, we pounce on the year's single best pressing, from a single olive grove and often a single olive variety.

It's no wonder Ed Behr in the authoritative Art of Eating called us "surely the best American source for fine Tuscan olive oil." It's also no wonder hundreds of Rare Wine Co. clients buy at least a case or two of Tuscan olive oil from us each year... and buy only from us. Many clients don't hesitate to age the oils, finding them even better in the second year.

With 28 harvest now under our belt – and our palates guided by our even greater experience with wine – we have a perspective other oil importers don't, resulting in oils that are another level from what's generally available in the market.

They're as carefully selected as our wines. And they've also been proclaimed a culinary godsend by publications ranging from The New York Times to the Wine Spectator.

To introduce wine and food lovers who've yet to experience the magic of our Tuscan olive oils, we've assembled two 3-bottle assortments from the very fine 2022 harvest.

Notes on the Oils:

2022 Vetrice Extra Virgin Olive Oilve
Vetrice is one of the great classic oils of Rufina, east of Florence. This year's selection was harvested between October 28th and 30th. Made entirely from Frantoio olives, the oil features artichoke, cardoon, and tree bark aromas. Green olive and bitter almond flavors lead to a peppery finish that builds over time.

2022 Colognole Mon Iovis Extra Virgin Olive Oil
From Colognole's lofty perch 600 meters above sea level in Rufina, this year's low-yield pressing from October 27th is dominated by Frantoio olives, which produce the green notes of artichoke and cardoon in the bouquet. On the palate, the oil is classically structured, with a very spicy finish.

2022 Franci Le Trebbiane Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Harvested by Franci, arguably Italy's most famous oil producer, on a single day, October 25th, this unique, single-variety oil features chicory and artichoke on the nose. On the palate, green with a leafy undertone and a long spicy finish.

2022 Pruneti Leccino Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pruneti is one of Tuscan's most admired growers. This oil, made entirely of Leccino olives, was harvested on October 23rd. A very expressive example of Leccino, it boasts a floral bouquet with orange blossom, wheatgrass, and thyme. On the palate, the flavors are green and fresh – lime zest, green almond flavors with supporting bitterness and a saline edge. The finish isn't aggressive, but heat builds with time.

2022 Fonte di Foiano "1979" Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Harvested on a single day, October 9th, this is the signature oil of Michaele di Gaetano. It's made entirely from Leccio di Corno, a local variety known for its relatively small, green  olives. It has a bouquet reminiscent of freshly cut flowers, oregano, and sage, but on the palate, it's green with a balsamic intensity and powerful finish.

2022 Castello di Volpaia Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Harvested between November 2nd and 9th, this seamless marriage of Frantoio, Leccino, and Pendolino olives features notes of wild herbs, especially sage, and artichoke, with black pepper on the finish.
