Owned by Mezzecrete, Agricola Neci is located in the heart of the Tuscan Crete Senesi, South East of Siena. The property covers 642 acres of cultivations, forests and olive groves along the Ombrone river. Historically committed to farming cereals, sunflowers and legumes, the company entered the premium olive oil business in 2004 by planting 19 acres of olive trees. Trees were selected in line with the standards required by the "Terre di Siena" P.D.O Consortium, which aims to safeguard extra virgin olive oil made in the area of Siena from counterfeit Tuscan oil. Today Olio Nece is Mezzecrete's high end product as well as its pride after being included in the Index of the World's Best Olive Oils for 2014 and in the Flos Olei 2015, the latter being the world's most important guidebook for extra virgin olive oils.
