This Special Selection Señorío de Vizcántar extra virgin olive oil earned the Silver Medal at the 2007 Los Angeles International Competition. The award winning harvest is available to you in this handsome 2.5 liter tin.
It is a deep golden oil, brimming with a fresh, sweet, fruity aroma. It is our family’s personal favorite - and the best seller of all the prize winning La Tienda offerings.
Think of Señorío as you would a full bodied and delicious red wine. If you are used to the routine and characterless brands you find on the supermarket shelf -- your eyes will be opened.
You will wonder why you put up with inferior products before. After all, you are not happy with bulk wine after you know the difference.
Fermín Rodríguez, a master taster, has drawn from the rich variety of olives available in the historic Priego de Córdoba region of Andalucía and blended fresh pressed juice from three types of olives. The oils he blends are Picudo, a fresh, fruity oil; Hojiblanca, a mild, floral oil; and Picual, a peppery, bold oil.
The result is a warm and complex flavor profile, with the perfect balance of fruity, herbal and peppery accents - thereby avoiding the flavor limitations of a single fruit olive oil.
Señorío is a wonderful way to begin savoring the many flavors of olive oil from Spain. Actually, we use Señorío for everything -- for seasoing seafood, sauteéing, and for making sauces such as ali oli. Most of all, it is great for crisp green salads, dipping with a crust of bread.
