Among the various typical local products, Lunigiana boasts quality Tuscan extra virgin olive oil I.G.P. which, due to its unique characteristics, is also equipped with a mention of the “Lunigiana hills”. In fact, even the variety of plants are typically Tuscan, in particular frantoio and leccino. The quality of the soil and the microclimate make it medium fruity, bitter and spicy, both in terms of smell and taste. Thanks to its balanced taste, it pairs well with all kinds of typical local dishes from testarolo, with its simple and delicate taste, to dishes based on wild boar or venison, and is also excellent for seasoning herbs and wild vegetables.
