TASTING NOTES AND FOOD PAIRING
Fresh aroma with classical notes of green Arbequina from the beginning of harvest, where a sensation of herbs, leaves, almonds, green walnut skin, and leafy vegetables of the artichoke type can be appreciated.
On the palate it comes fluid and very fresh, with a clear and powerful bitterness reminiscent of artichoke, cardoon, leaves and almond. Long aftertaste and spiciness somewhat lighter than bitterness, being less perceptible owing to the powerful greenness present in this oil.
