The Picual olives are one of the most cultivated varieties of Spain. The olive oil extracted from Picual olives has a medium aromatic profile with pleasant notes of tomato, fig tree, olive leaf, and freshly cut grass. Its oil is also well known for its strong bitter- and spiciness. It is often mixed with other oil to soften its bitterness and enhance its fruity flavor. Thanks to its stability the olive oil extracted from Picual olive has a long shelf life and makes it stable for cooking or frying.
Arbequina, a traditional Spanish olive variety, ranks as the second most popular variety in Spain in terms of crop area. The olive oil derived from Arbequina boasts aromatic, sweet, and fruity notes, accompanied by a subtle bitterness. Common aromas associated with this variety include green grass, tomato, apple, banana, and ripe fruit. Generally, oils produced from Arbequina olives exhibit low oxidation resistance. To address this, producers frequently blend Arbequina olive oil with other varieties to enhance overall stability in terms of aroma, body, and resistance to oxidation.
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.

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.
Deortegas Arbequina Organic EVOO - ElOlivo review:
This is a delicate EVOO with amazingly fresh green aromas such as banana, apple and almond. It is sweet and well balanced with a slight spiciness at the end. We were amazed by the fresh aromas of this oil, this is what makes this EVOO exceptional. We use it only raw, for dressing salads, soups or making sauces. We also tried it with our homemade Basque Cheese Cake and it was delicious. We use also this oil for making Basil Pesto. Pairs perfectly with the pine nuts and the Grana Padano.
