“They are monumental trees” Ancient olive trees are part of the Tuscan cultural heritage to be valued and saved with long distance adoption, allowing everyone to have their “green gold”, the most popular raw material in world cuisine and the renowned quality of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil. An olive tree can produce up to 10-20 kilos (22- 44 lb) of olives which means 1 or 2 liters of Extra Virgin Oil. So we decided to ask our friends for a little help so that our olive trees can reach even thousands of miles away directly in your homes, bearing the fruits of our “Green Gold” as a thank you for the commitment of adoption. With the adoption all of you can take care of these centenary olive trees and create a special bond with tradition and with the Tuscan territory. From 1 September 2020 it will be possible to take part in the international campaign which has the aim of not only saving an ancient variety of Tuscan olive trees, but also allowing them to receive part of the crop of the product that is generated from the tree every year. The idea was born when Pierluigi Giachi found himself in this large hilly area in the Florence area, which around the 1980s, where there are many ancient olive trees, was abandoned due to difficulties in processing. The reasons for this abandonment can be found in the fact that it is a very demanding activity that is difficult to cultivate and maintain, compared to the vine, in the Chianti tuscany area with greater yield and ease of cultivation. Pierluigi and his Tenuta Torciano wanted to restore life, strength and courage to these beautiful plants, abandoned for years, in order not to lose a unique cultural and productive heritage in our beautifulTuscany. The remote olive grove initiative allows our “virtual farmers” to adopt one or more olive trees, to have the opportunity to observe the vegetative development of the tree adopted, to see the birth and picking of the fruits - olives produced by tree, to participate in the olive harvest, to bring the olives to the mill and to receive the oil produced from the olives of the plant adopted.

It is possible for one or more people to give their names to the plant and have their own personalized plaque to be placed directly on the trunk of the tree. Our adoptive farmers will periodically receive information on growth, pruning, fertilization, flowering, the harvest that each individual olive tree produces. They will also receive directly at home the certificate of adoption of the plant or of several olive trees for a period of one year or several years, based on the request of our adoptive farmer.

“Help us to keep them in health” These wonderful old plants are now in a state of neglect due to high maintenance costs, they are exposed to the aggression of weeds, such as ivy, which envelops and suffocates the trunk, and to parasites and diseases that cause deterioration and death of the olive trees.

Ivy and other parasite plants envelop and suffocate the olive trees. A great deal of manual work is required to restore it to good conditions.

A great threat is what we call ‘fumaggine’ (sooty mould), a disease caused by a fungus that accumulates on leaves and trunks, making them the color of smoke.

“Xylella” is another very dangerous disease caused by a bacterium that has caused the loss of thousands of plants in southern Italy, becoming a real emergency. Just like COVID-19 prevents oxygen from reaching our vital organs, xylella clogs the inside of olive trees so they can’t absorb water.

Our olive trees are in danger. The reclamation and maintenance work that we can implement with your help will allow us to preserve this heritage that is otherwise destined to disappear.

The Region

LAUDATOSÍ Extra Virgin Olive Oil Olive trees are an important part of the Tuscan landscape, and Tuscan extra virgin olive oil is a symbolic product of the Tuscan region. The cultivation of the olive tree in the Chianti Classico PDO production area has a millenary tradition, documented since the mid-seventh century BC. The Middle Ages represented a moment of expansion for olive growing, linked to the increase in plantations throughout Tuscany, especially in the areas

between Florence and Siena. The characteristics of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil reflect the richness of the region: they vary according to the variety of olives used, the time of harvest, the territory. The oil of “Chianti Classico” must be produced exclusively with olives from olive groves consisting for at least 80% of plants of the “Frantoio”, “Correggiolo”, “Moraiolo”, “Leccino” varieties, alone or jointly.

Extra virgin olive oil is an easily perishable food, so it is important to store it in a cool place, away from light, at a temperature between 14 and 18 ° C ( 57,2 and 64,4 °F ), away from heat sources. It can be consumed for up to two years after squeezing, as it maintains its characteristic aromas and flavors for a long time. Chianti Classico PDO extra virgin olive oil is particularly suitable for raw consumption to flavor soups, grilled meats and vegetables. It is also an ideal ingredient for many typical dishes such as lasagna, ribollita and panzanella.
