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 is an exceptional quality olive oil full of surprises. In terms of aromas, it is a fine and delicate oil with fruity hints of green tomato, apple, banana and green almond with notes of basil. At tasting it was surprisingly sweet and harmonious followed by the classic distinguished pungency and bitterness of the cornicabra variety. We drizzle this oil on our roast potatoes, tomato and goat cheese salad. This oil is also ideal for cooking, we make our stews and casserole with this oil. Exceptional quality, warmly recommended.
