On the road in Italy: A quick jaunt from Florence

Filippo Alampi of Fattoria Ramerino is a terrific host. He shared views of his trees, techniques in the mill, and his insights to the qualities of Leccino, Moraiolo, and Frantoio olives.

Filippo also hosted dinner at his favorite restaurant just outside of Florence in Bagno a Ripoli, Ristorante al 588. Highly recommended!

Photos below are Filippo with Chef Andrea Perrini and one of the chef’s best dishes, featuring Filippo’s Fattoria Ramerino Guadagnolo Primus Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

The charming chef and the amazing olive oil producer.

You can stay the night at the same property. (Better yet, stay a week!) Visit Borgo I Vicelli’s web site.
