Bag in box format: perfect to preserve the aromas and properties of the olive oil. It is fully protected from light and oxidation (olive oil's two great enemies) thanks to its sealed foil pouch.
Temprano in Spanish means early. This EVOO is extracted from Picual olives harvested when the fruit is still green, normally the last days of October. Green notes and complex personality for a spectacular fruitiness: fresh, clean and bright. Its bitterness talks about the high levels of polyphenols picual variety has, and the spicy character is given by oleocanthal, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, naturally present on this kind of olive. Combined with a 80% of monounsaturated fats, this olive oil can be considered one of the healthiest you can find. Thought to give personality, to enhance the flavors on its own way, is perfect for dressing, working with a few elements. Really interesting for finishing warm dishes: all the green vegetable aromas (tomato, artichoke, grass) releases creating and spectacular effect. Its very particular hint and bitterness make it surprisingly suitable combined with sweets: chocolates, ice creams, mousse...
This is olive oil
I have tried many different olive oil's I really like this one. Especially if you love a potent rich tasting olive oil, beatiful green color as well to match its intensity
Intense green color
It has an intense green color. It is impressive on the nose due to its intense green fruitiness, appearing aromas of freshly cut grass, tomato leaf and fig tree. On the palate, fresh and balanced, with a hint of moderate spiciness and an artichoke aftertaste.
Just pure olive juice
Until you try an olive oil in this price range, you don't know what real olive oil is. I have only seen two bad comments, but do not seem fair to me because it is one of the best oils that I have tried and that I will try in my entire life. I didn't even know olive juice tasted like that. If this kind of EVOO is not for you, I would recommend Arbequina that has a sweeter taste.
El mejor aceite del país
El mejor aceite que he probado hasta ahora en América. Bravo Tierra Callada
One of the best
Julie & Sam
One of the best oils I have ever tasted
worth paying more
You can find cheaper olive oils but not as good as this one (not even close)
a good evoo from Spain
As a person who has lived in Spain, I have tried many oils and this, of course, has been the one that has transported myself back to my origins. The bottle is thick and with an awesome design, so it protects the content we have in it from outside light. This oil is quite dense and with a fairly intense and bright green color along with a quite appetizing aroma. Obviously, you can cook with this oil, but I prefer to enjoy it raw.
The colour, the smell, the taste
Premium olive oil
Just by the smell you can tell you have the good stuff. Highly recommended!
I don't remember tasting a more exquisite oil than this. My brother gave it to me as a gift for my birthday and I can't live without it anymore. Okay, because of the price I use it drop by drop... but it's worth it.
everything you're looking for
I bought it for a Bithday present. It was stored for 6 month and still kept the green color that I was looking for. It is undoubtedly a special and unique oil, with an incredible flavor and a color as pleasant as green. 100% recommended, fast shipping and a tremendously usefull container.
Possibly the best olive oil I ever had. I love the format but you should't move too much the box so no drops fall.
