Italy Ogliarola Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Acidity: 0.35| Crop: Fall 2019 | Polyphenol: 334
The Ogliarols trees are secular, with a large “body”. They mainly grow in the Puglian Hills of Gargano and Salento area, just a few miles away from the Adriatic Sea (Eastern Coast of Italy). The are harvested early, when their color is still green turning brown. Incredibly delicious on any olive oil friendly dish such as fish, rigatoni pasta, bruschetta, pesto, caprese salad, shaved brussel sprouts, risotto, and more.
Flavor Profile: Deep fruity/grassy aroma with a “white fruit” (apple and white peach) taste followed up with a light almond aftertaste. The cultivar has a reputation of maintaining a consistent taste throughout the harvest year. Color is golden yellow with light green reflex.
Favorite Pairings: Blueberry Balsamic, Dark Chocolate Balsamic, Orange White Balsamic
