A blatantly floral variety, very stimulating due to the citrus aromas that rise, highlights the green grass, banana and nuts. Light and expansive in the mouth, with a soft progressive spiciness and tropical touch. A variety with great content that expresses itself.

We just call this oil “tutti fruity”. It is an amazingly fruity oil with a slight bite at the end. For us, the most amazing is sour cherry with floral note aromas. You will also feel some green apple and green almond when you smell the oil. In the mouth, the fruitiness continues with a bit stronger presence of green apple and dried fruits. We only use it raw. One of our favourite oil for dressing any salads, dipping with cheese plates. We think it is perfect for finishing every vegetable dish. We strongly recommend this oil, it is just amazing.
