ÚNICO          ARBEQUINA    ARBOSANA    HACIENDA IBER

  UNICO

Extra Virgin Olive Oil · Selected Intense Fruity
A so called “gourmet”, “from author” or “premium” oil. It is a “coupage” of different consignments of “Arbequina”, "Empeltre", “Arbosana” and “Frantoio” olives. An oil with all desirable traits is obtained, it is what is called an “all round” olive oil. It is available in dark glass, high quality vessels with 250 ml and 500 ml capacity, which convey a very well cared image. The amount produced is very limited, following carefully compiled elaboration protocols with different harvesting dates, mostly early ones. Early harvest emphasizes its most important trait: the fruity flavour.
