This is a lively robust, green-fruit extra virgin olive oil that is extracted from early harvest olives. Its aroma is pronounced and herbaceous with hints of tomato vine, artichoke and olive leaf. Its taste is well-balanced in bitter and spicy notes with a pleasant peppery finish. Emerald green in color with a robust flavor, this oil is perfect for complementing complex flavored foods such as grilled meats, strong fish, squash, and hearty soups.
With a much more olive forward flavor and spicy finish, this oil is perfect for drizzling at the finish for a more intense and singular taste sensation. Generously drizzle on your favorite pasta dishes. Incredible on fresh fruit salads, especially watermelon. Baste on grilled fish, seafood, and vegetables. Makes a great butter replacement too.
Favorite Pairings: Pear Apple Balsamic, Black Cherry Balsamic, Strawberry Balsamic, Peach White Balsamic
Thanks to its status as a spotlight food in the Mediterranean diet, and thanks to extensive research on its unique phytonutrient composition, olive oil has become a legendary culinary oil with very difficult to match health benefits.
Polyphenols have been shown to function as both antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory nutrients in the body. The very number and variety of polyphenols in olive oil helps explain the unique health benefits of this culinary oil. Because of the high polyphenol levels, as little as 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil per day have been shown to be associated with significant anti-inflammatory benefits.
