First Prize intense green fruitiness, Mario Solinas Quality Award, 2017 International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition
â€śIntense fruitiness, fresh, very complex and harmonious, with notes of freshly cut grass, tomato, green apple and green almond; strong and astringent taste, the bitter and pungent intensity is comparable with the intensity of the fruitiness giving the oil a good balance and persistence; it is rounded off by an intense taste of green leaf, aromatic herbs, artichoke, green tomato and green banana, which together make for an exceptional oil.â€ť
