Once you experience the distinct taste of millennial Olvero extra virgin olive oil, no other will compare. Harvested from ancient thousand-year-old picual olive trees, this intense, buttery oil with spicy undertones enhances any dish - though we would rather just enjoy it solo with fresh crusty bread.
This exceptional extra virgin olive oil is the perfect oil for grilled veggies and drizzled on fresh salads. Not only is this olive oil superior in flavor, picual olives are particularly rich in healthy antioxidants. Some devotees even sip a teaspoon a day as a health tonic.
Created by a small family company from Jaén, in the heart of Andalusian olive country, this first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is very low in acidity, about 0.1 percent. The groves of trees from which it is harvested are over one thousand years old and their olives are plucked at the optimal point of ripeness. Because their yield is very low, the older trees produce a more intense, flavorful oil.
This Olvero oil is housed in a beautiful porcelain ceramic bottle glazed with red and green colors that are reminiscent of the olives from which it is made. A cork stopper and spout add the finishing touch and allow this bottle to be reused when the oil runs out. Display the lovely container in your kitchen or on your table.
Olvero olive oil has earned several awards, including Olivinus 2011 in Argentina and Terraolive 2012 in Israel. In both competitions has earned the gold medal, given to extra virgin olive oils of superb quality. In 2013 Olvero won the silver medal in the AVPA Specialty Foods competition in Paris.
