The oils with this quality stamp are extra virgin made from the Arbequina variety (the main variety with over 90%) and the Verdiell. The best cultivation practices, local climatic conditions, olives gathered straight from the tree and painstaking cold production at the cooperatives and oil mills are the main guarantees for this premium quality, 100% natural oil, which is a delicious fruity juice of fresh olive, dense, rich in flavour, with aromas of grass and leaves, tomato and green almond. The greener the olive, the more intense are its bitter and spicy attributes, for lovers of green oil; but when the olive is riper, these taste attributes are milder as the sweeter flavour prevails.
