PRODUCTION: Olives are defoliated and pressed within 24 hours from harvesting. Olives are washed with cold water and pressed to a pulp by a stainless steel mill.

PALATE: Pungent, spicy, astringent and bitter upon bottling. With time, its evolution leaves room to milder and gentlier flavours, while keeping its typical spicyness and a pleasantly bitter finale. Similarly, its aftertaste is green and dry in its first months, and milder with age.
NOTES: our ExtraVirgin Olive oil is NOT FILTERED. Therefore, sediments might be present (or appear with the passing of time) in the bottom of the bottle. This is an expected consequence of the natural evolution of the Product.
