Anteata olive oil comes to life on mount Amiata’s olive groves…
… above the vineyards where the prized Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced.
The fertile volcanic soil of this region, as well as its altitude, contribute to the favorable conditions in which our olives are cultivated.
The early harvest of the green unripe fruits results in a low yield of premium extra virgin olive oil with a complex flavour and incredibly high levels of antioxidant.
Pressed a few hours after the harvest, our oil is immediately filtered and stocked in optimal conditions in oxygen free and temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until it is bottled for delivery when orders are made.
Daniele Lepori’s magic olive oil!
Daniele Lepori is renown as a master alchemist amongst the producers of premium olive oils.
His olive oil is unique.
Back in 2005 he bought a farm in Tuscany on Mount Amiata – the Azienda Agricole Anteata - and its thousands of olive trees with the lifetime project of developing his own premium olive oil. He lives there with his wife and three children.
Daniele invested in a lot of high-tech equipment to create a unique olive oil, with an extraordinary poly-phenolic intensity… arguably one of the richest antioxidant oils in the world. As a true alchemist Daniele has also focused on exalting the flavours and aromas.
The health benefits of Anteata olive oil have been acknowledged by the the London IOOC with a special 2018 Health Claim Platinum Honor award never previously given to an olive oil producer.
Since then, Anteata olive oil has won numerous gold medals including four successively in the last two years (2019 and 2020) in Italy, London, New York and Tokyo.
