Frantoio Franci is a family business founded in 1958 by Fernando and Franco Franci when they purchased, their first olive grove called Villa Magra.
The farm is located in southern Tuscany in Montenero Val d’Orcia on the slopes of Monte Amiata.
The year 1995 marks a turning point for the family business with the wisdom, enthusiasm and modern approach of the youngest generation, Giorgio Franci is who transformed the family business into one of the best Olive Oil farm there is today, recognized for their highest quality strict criteria and by olive oils defined by their organoleptic characteristic, chemical parameters terroir origins and quality standard.
Their goal has been a challenging one to produce only the best and the highest premium quality, maintaining intact the genuineness of the olive fruit without any compromise.
From this philosophy emerged the first Villa Magra Olive Oil accompanied by the concept of selection and terroir.
And as a natural evolution of their new philosophy, like in great wines, the concept “Grand Cru” was developed and in 2000 Villa Magra Grand Cru’ was born, from and extremely and careful and rigorous selection, produced only in the best year and where every single bottle is numbered.
The seasonal variables which determine the quality of the crop are a constant and stimulating challenge. These variables can affect the quantity of the finished product, but not their overall quality. The year of production has the power to determine that subtle and fascinating margin which separates a good bottle from an outstanding product.
