5 liter canister of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from monocultivar Coratina, 100% italian, available with resealable cap.
The oil that comes from the pressing of this olive is very intense and fruity, with notes of grass or leaves with low levels of peroxides and acidity (<0.2%).
It presents a yellow-green colour, with a lightly bitter flavour due to the high concentration of Oleuropein and typically spicy due to the high levels of polyphenols.
The Coratina olive is slow to ripen and is largely processed when it is still green; in this way, it retains and always offers a fresh and fruity bouquet, similar to green apple, thereby satisfying even the most expert and refined palates.
The fruity character of this oil allows it to be used raw to highlight the flavours of dishes like pulses, salads and fish.
It is excellent mixed with lemon juice to create heady yet fresh-tasting dressings.
