One of the best value Puglian Extra Virgin Olive Oils you will find in the UK. From the Castel del Monte region where the fruity Coratina olive reigns supreme.
The olives are grown totally naturally, without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. It’s amazing to witness the olives harvested by hand and immediately cold pressed using ancient millstones.
The oil is delicate and fruity with low acidity. It has a nice piquant aftertaste due to high levels of polyphenols and antioxidants present in the Coratina (good for the arteries and skin).
It is green with yellow reflexes. A great all-rounder for salads, veg, fish and meats. It makes a great party/event olive oil as it covers all the uses you might need and the quality shines through.
NB. EV olive oils at this price are usually a mix of different oils, often of unknown origin.
