Capital: Florence | Known world-wide for its landscapes and artistic legacy, almost every Tuscan town and city is filled with considerable natural and architectural beauty. It is said that Florence alone has more world class art than most countries. One visit to this region will prove Tuscany definitely lives up to all the press.
Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil | known as one of the best, can range from golden green to yellow-green due to the early harvesting to avoid early winter frosts. With tastes described as rustic, herbaceous, spicy, with a robust and peppery bite, Tuscan oils are traditionally paired with fettunta (grilled bread), legumes, farro salad, fish, pork tenderloins, pasta and vegetables.
Typical Tuscan Olive Varieties: Frantoio, Leccino, Maurino, Moraiolo, Pendolino, Olivastra
