Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Intense green fruity extra virgin olive oil (+6). Aromas of wild herbs from the countryside are perceived, in the same intensity as the green of tree leaves and aromatic plants such as thyme, tarragon and fennel. On the palate it is dense, with great body, and they remain balanced, bitter and spicy, perfectly harmonized (+4/5). It presents flavors of arugula, nasturtiums, watercress, green tomato, pistachios, wild apple, artichoke heart and fig leaves. It is long and a slight flavor of crass herbs such as bird grape or Venus's navel lingers on the palate, with a saline and spicy touch of fresh pepper.
Tasting note and pairing
The Picual variety is perfect for seasoning raw recipes and also for cooking and frying due to its great stability. It is ideal for blue fish dishes, eggs, marinades, vegetable pates, white and red meats, mushrooms, cured and salted fish. In desserts it pairs very well with citrus and chocolate.
