Tuscan Olive Oil Producer MANNI Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a certified Organic Toscano PGI, was founded in 2000 by Armando Manni.

MANNI Oil is the recipient of many prestigious awards, including the New York 2023 Gold Medal for Organic Olive Oil. We at Appetito are thrilled to share this video interview with Mr. Manni, conducted by our contributor Jan Busalacchi, which touches upon the science of what keeps Extra Virgin Olive Oil pure and also Mr. Manni's "super chocolate" endeavor with legendary chef Thomas Keller (and scroll down or visit our YouTube channel for drone footage of the MANNI property).
