LECCIO DEL CORNO
This variety called “Leccio del Corno” has been spotted for the first time in the San Casciano Val di Pesa countryside and now can be found in many of our colder olive growing areas. This is a beautiful, very elegant, and practically ornamental tree. It produces an oil strong in flavors and taste. Due to its bitter and hot features, it differs from other oils obtained in the same environment.
The Leccio del Corno tree is really elegant and for this reason, it is also used in gardens for its large spiral-shaped leaves. Its flowers are not self-fertilizing and therefore it needs other varieties (such as Pendolino or Frantoio). The Leccio del Corno fruits are small and gathered in clusters just like grapes; they ripen later than other varieties.
Perfect condiment for
It is ideal for the classic dishes of Tuscan cuisine such as ribollita, steak, roasted meat, artichokes carpaccio, grilled vegetables, or “pinzimonio”.
