The olive tree's roots are inextricably entwined with the culinary history of the region and this fascinating tasting experience is a voyage of discovery through the palette of Tuscan olive oils; from the spicy "olio novo" of the Chianti Classico up the Tyrrhenian Coast to the oil produced in the area around Bolgheri.
The tasting takes place in an enoteca called Obsequium, which is housed in the mediaeval Marsili Tower. The experience also includes a tasting of Balsamic vinegars from the area around Modena in Emilia Romagna, accompanied by a selection of typical cheeses and mustards.
