Robust Intensity

Crush Date:  November 2017

FIRST PRIZE - MARIO SOLINAS QUALITY AWARD, 2017 INTERNATIONAL EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL COMPETITION

Intense fruitiness, fresh, very complex and harmonious, with notes of freshly cut grass, tomato, green apple and green almond.  Strong and astringent taste, the bitter and pungent intensity is comparable with the intensity of the fruitiness giving the oil a good balance and persistence.  It is rounded off by an intense taste of green leaf, aromatic herbs, artichoke, green tomato and green banana, which together make for an exceptional oil.
