Borgo di Sugame olive oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The extra virgin olive oil from Sugame is a blend of several varieties of olives: Francois, Leccino, Moraiolo. The olives are picked by hand and taken within 48 hours to the ‘frantoio’, the olive press. The olives are cultivated organically and the oil is cold-pressed – extracted without heat (at 24 C – 27 C) – thus producing an outstanding quality of olive oil, intense green in colour with golden tints.Price € 15 per bottle. Order form.

Borgo di Sugame grappa

Grappa Invecchiata di Chianti Classico

The Grappa is made by distillation using the skins from the grapes used to make Chianti Classico wine, after which it is aged in oak. It is this aging in wood which gives this particular grappa a smoothness and softness to the palette. Price € 25 per bottle. Order form.
