UMBRA from Deortegas - Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil (250 ml)
An infusion that concentrates all the flavours of wild mushrooms, the damp earthiness of the forest and plant aromas that all come together in perfect harmony.
Created in collaboration with the Murcian chef David López, from the Local de Ensayo Restaurant, it combines Deortegas Cornicabra extra virgin olive oil with wild mushrooms, aromatic plants, a traditional purple garlic from the region and a natural moss extract.
A powerful condiment that stands out for its multitude of uses in the kitchen we recommend it to dress a plate of pasta, or fish, meat, vegetables, rice and sauces. Drizzled over a dish it will act as the unifying thread without the need for anything more.
Perfect for finishing dishes or on it's own with good bread - it's simply delicious.
Cold pressed. Produced with the greatest respect for the natural environment.

After waiting for the most interesting and delicious one, we are proud to introduce the first infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil to our shop. This unique EVOO infusion is the result of a collaboration between Deortegas and Murcian chef David López, from the Local de Ensayo Restaurant. Upon opening a bottle, we immediately noticed the intense aromas of wild mushrooms that transported us to a forest after a rainy day. We have never experienced such strong aromas before in an infused oil. On the palate, we tasted a variety of wild mushrooms with earthy aftertones. This oil is best used as a finishing oil, particularly for creamy pasta dishes or steaks. It is also a perfect accompaniment to cheese and meat platters. The flavor is truly mind-blowing! If you love mushrooms, this is the oil for you.
