Crush Date: Nov 2018

This lovely oil has a sweet fruity taste with hints of almond and artichoke, that will not mask the flavors of delicate foods like fish or vegetables, and is ideal for bread-dipping.  It's spicy on the finish and mildly bitter.  This Taggiasca is a mid season harvest to capture the spice and artichoke aromas and to tease out a bit of nutty ripe and faintly floral notes. 

The Olive Groove's extra virgin olive oils are some of the finest in the world, required to meet our strict chemistry and organoleptic standards, our quality is impeccable.
