This extra virgin olive oil is robust with complex fruit, apples, green grapes & a big green herbaceous kick. As big as this oil is, it's well balanced, with its rich fruity flavors, pungency (peppery burn on the throat) and bitterness. Barouni is great for cooking lamb, grilling fish and vegetables, and ideally balances balsamic vinegar. It adds a spark of peppery spiciness and is right at home with hummus and couscous. Think of this extra virgin olive oil as something you'd consume daily for your health.
