The Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Rosa and Meo, is Monocultivar: Itrana. There are no flaws. Color: intense golden yellow with green nuances. It is opaque. Smell: the nose is broad and enveloping. Decisive and elegant. Hints of medium ripe red tomato, apple, and banana which blends with a floral scent of rose. Aromatic notes of basil, mint, and oregano, with a hint of black pepper. Taste: enveloping and complex with tones of field vegetables, broad beans, celery with a clear sweet almond finish. A slight spicy bitterness exists but these characteristics are not exceptionally prevailing. This oil can be defined as medium fruitful.
