Vignamaggio’s oil is produced from the traditional Chianti olive varieties Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino and Pendolino. The olives, handpicked in November and December, are pressed by continuous cycle system within 24 hours of harvesting.
An annual qualitative chemical and organoleptic analysis ascertains high polyphenol, tocopherol and oleic acid content.
Polyphenols are natural antioxidants, the compounds responsible for the product’s long shelf life. They are also an important part of the human diet, providing a defense against the production of free radicals.
Tocopherols are vitamin E containing compounds necessary for increasing the antioxidant potential in human cells, which delays ageing. Their role in cardiac disease prevention, immune system support and skin health is well documented.
