Volume (ml)

Description

Intense green fruity extra virgin olive oil (+7). On the nose, the sensation of fresh grass, alfalfa, plantago, purslane, daisies and dandelion is clearly perceived. And in deeper inhalations appear aromatic plants such as fresh oregano, sage leaves, fennel, pimpernel and wild calaminth. This complexity of aromas is expressed in the mouth along with the notes of apple and green almond typical of the early harvest of the Arbequina variety; leaving a long and smooth aftertaste of tomato, mallow, borage and thistle leaves. The spicy sensation (+4) is fresh and crunchy and remains one point above the bitter perception (+3), present in the tasting descriptors of the wild plants in its environment.

Opinions

Good for the soul…and for the stomach!

“At the risk of becoming mystical, I would say that visiting Finca Fontclara is good for the soul. And if we end up with a tasting of oils and an aperitif, it's also great for the stomach!”

Marta Ramos, visitor

The essence of the Emporda

“Fontclara extra virgin olive oil has the property of condensing in a single drop what, for many, is the essence of the Empordà: its flavor, its aromas, its character… In short: its soul”.

Laura Conde, journalist

A place to disconnect

“Visiting the Fontclara estate is, without a doubt, an experience that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. It is like entering another world, the perfect place to disconnect from the world among olive groves”.

Joan Perez, visitor

An oil capable of changing any dish

“A few drops of Fontclara extra virgin olive oil are capable of giving new dimensions to any dish: they add incredible nuances to a simple steamed vegetable! At home it is essential ”.
