Robust Vipiano Wins Gold Award for Tuscan Blend

4 months agoBy OOT Staff

Central Italian producer Azienda Agricola Giancarlo Giannini has won a Gold Award at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

Situated in the small village of Vitiano, south of Arezzo, in Tuscany, the producer earned its sixth-consecutive award for the Vipiano brand, a robust blend.

"This victory is really very important for us, it's a great achievement," owner Giancarlo Giannini said.

In the 2021/22 crop year, the producer yielded 20,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods. Giannini said last year's dry weather significantly impacted his production.

"The most important problem we faced last year was the extreme drought, which caused a considerable decline in production," he said.

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest. Its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.

The complete list of winners can be viewed in the Official Guide to the World's Best Olive Oils.
