Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The green flavors stand out over the fruit ones in this oil. There are intense fruity green olive, herbs, olive leaf,tomato and artichoke.
The palate entry is soft, but with character. Green notes on the nose are confirmed, but without being aggressive. It's bitter and spicy but not too much and has a little astringency reminiscent of thistle or artichoke. Velvety. Very structured and persistent.
Eating Suggestions: special for salad dressings, tomato soup, gazpacho, cured ham and cheeses, grilled meats.
Presentation: Dark glass. Cherry colour.
Net Content: 500 ml. Bottles per case: 6.
