Tapping olive oil straight from the drum

After we were armed with some fresh baked bread, we were in need of some more treats for our afternoon in the Tuscan sun. We found this great little deli in the piazza and head on in. The variety of products inside includes antipasto vegetables, cheese, cured meats, dips, dairy and more.

But then we spot in the corner a drum filled with Tuscan extra virgin olive oil. We order a bottle, and the very-Gepetto-esque (Pinocchio's father) owner of the shop casual walks over and taps the oil straight from the tank.

The whole novel idea was so fun, but the oil itself was superb for dipping our bread !!

Greve in Chianti
