Ottomani was started in 2006 by four friends who met studying oenology at the University of Florence. Post graduation and various jobs later, they found a dream farm for sale in Chianti Colli Fiorentini D.O.C.G. Today the four friends live and work together on the 100% self-sustaining farm. The farm is solar powered, has a water well, various livestock, an abundant vegetable & herb garden, and a vineyard and olive tree orchard.
2020 Ottomani Tuscan Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
This olive oil is from Impruneta & Greve in Chianti, an area just 9 miles south of Florence and traditionally known as the best region for Tuscan olive oil production. It is a blend of 40% Moraiolo, 40% Frantoio, 15% Leccino, 5% Coreggiolo; all native Tuscan varieties. The olives are hand-harvested in small baskets and pressed off within 12 hours of being picked.
Organic/biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, and native yeast fermentation.
Ciao Pappy Marinara alla Pappy Sauce
In 2021, Francesca Pittaluga and her husband Matthew started Ciao Pappy with the vision to be a staple in your pantry and play a small role in creating lifetime memories. Francesca’s father (Pappy) is Italian and growing up Italian-American meant that good food and a lively dinner table was the heartbeat of their family. When it came to cooking, Pappy always said that a well tasting Italian meal only needs a few, fresh, quality ingredients. His kitchen rules inspired their products to be made with local, fresh, and quality ingredients.
Ingredients: whole tomatoes, onions, garlic, herbs, salt, red pepper, extra virgin olive oil, sugar, cream

Leah Ferrazzani’s handmade pasta is a chef favorite and is served at top-tier L.A. restaurants like Nancy Silverton’s Osteria Mozza, Ted Hopson’s The Bellwether, and Jackson Kalb’s Jame Enoteca. This traditional, slow-dried, full-flavored, certified organic durum semolina rigatoni is delizioso with all’amatriciana sauce or in Arden’s Rigatoni alla Cauliflower.
