The oil extracted from Cornicabra olives has a high content of Oleocanthal. Typical aromas: green leaves, tomato and almond. Early harvested Cornicabra oil is intensively spicy and bitter. If the olives are harvested later in the season the oil can be more forgiving, sweet with notes of exotic fruits such as avocado. As it is a stable oil it is suitable for cooking and frying.

This olive oil is truly exceptional, offering a delightful range of flavors that never fail to surprise and delight. Its aroma is both fine and delicate, featuring fruity notes reminiscent of green tomatoes, apples, bananas, and green almonds, complemented by subtle hints of basil. When you taste it, you'll be pleasantly surprised by its sweetness and harmonious flavor, followed by the classic, distinguished pungency and bitterness of the Cornicabra variety. It's our go-to choice for drizzling over roasted potatoes, tomato, and goat cheese salad, and it works wonders in the kitchen for preparing stews and casseroles. I wholeheartedly recommend this outstanding quality oil.
