The hills of Reggello are characterized by the typical terraces cultivated with olive trees, present since the fourteenth century and which mark deeply in the landscape. The land of these places produces an excellent oil renowned for its low acidity and particular organoleptic characteristics, due to the height of the olive groves (300 m) and the peculiarity of the earth. It is a fairly unique terrain in Tuscany, with a very low limestone content and a high quartz content. There are numerous farms that produce the fine extra virgin olive oil from Reggello Toscano PGI obtained by pressing in the various mills in the area.
