Bajo Aragón, Teruel, Spain
Mis Raíces Premium (My Premium Roots) extra virgin olive oil is produced from an exclusive and unique Empeltre variety cultivated by true descendants of generations of olive growers in the fields of Bajo Aragón in Spain. This fantastic coupage has a yellow color with nuances of gold and lets us obtain an oil with a medium fruity taste. Furthermore, the nose recalls a medium fruity intensity where we may enjoy hints of fresh grass as well as tomato and artichoke aromas, with a final touch of fennel which is characteristic of the Empeltre olive. At mouth level it flows, and its bitterness, spiciness and sweetness are highlighted by its equilibrium and intensity. Those three attributes are accompanied by a slight astringent sensation, and delicious flavors of nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, both very characteristic of the Empeltre olive.
Suggested uses: It is best used on mild foods: cheeses, breads, mild salads, white fish, and to make mayonnaise.
