We are pleased to announce the 5 leaves prize, the top score of the prestigious guide Bibenda 22 of the Italian Sommelier Foundation.

The Italian Sommelier Foundation Bibenda for over 50 years selects the excellence of wine and extra virgin olive oil in Italy.

For this reason, the guide has become a reference point for enthusiasts and professionals in the world of wine, extra virgin olive oil, and grappa.

The evaluations are described using the tasting method of the Italian Sommelier Foundation, i.e. they are expressed in Bunches or Drops corresponding to score ranges from 2 to 5 bunches/drops:

  • 4 bunches or 4 drops: wines and oils of great quality and outstanding value and their score range from 85 to 90 cents.
  • 5 bunches or 5 drops: excellent wines and oils and their score range from 91 to 100 cents.
What a surprise!

We participated at the olive harvest with the Pinelli family. I must say that the atmosphere that was breathed was magical. Then we attended their oil festival, along with a hundred other people. Fantastic experience that we will take with us. Grazie mille!

Endless flavour

Every time we come to Paciano meeting Lucia, we are amazed at how the simplest things can be the most wonderful.
