Product description

This oil comes from a heterogeneous plantation situated around the farmhouse. The olives are picked almost entirely by hand and then cold-milled using stones, before being bottled in the producer’s cellars. The olive harvest requires patience and passion because the olive trees are often found on steep slopes and also because of the erratic weather of the season when it takes place: November and December.
Deep green in colour, it has the fruity scents and flavour of raw artichokes and fresh herbs, with a pleasantly spicy note in the throat.
Recommended in the preparation of condiments for pasta and meat, it is also excellent with all kinds of vegetables.
