The Laudemio

In 2008, I was fortunate to visit the Frescobaldi vineyards in Tuscany.  It was 11am as my family and I sat at a grand dining table in the original Frescobaldi home.  The table was plentiful with numerous plates of cheese, cured meats, bread, wine, olives, and "The" Laudemio.  We came for the wine, but we were blown away by the olive oil.  I have never seen bread disappear so fast.  Needless to say, we all flew back with a bottle or two of this magical liquid.

Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Marchesi de Frescobaldi might as well be liquid gold.  Pictured below, it should be savored until the last drop, mmmmm.
