Cerasuola Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: 2018

Country / Region: Italy / Sicily

Intensity: Mild - Medium

Description: The Cerasuola is a rare variety from Sicily, that is both sweet and smooth. This year's harvest represents the characteristics of this varietal very well. An oil to be enjoyed and appreciated while it lasts. A limited production and yield from the 2018 harvest season.

Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This harvest of the Cerasuola presents the palate with prominent notes of creamy almond and artichoke followed by a delayed and lingering chili pepper sensation. It is the highest in our collection of the healthful phenolic compound Oleacein, which imparts an astringent, spicy mouth feel creating a very distinctive sensation from Oleocanthal. Experiencing this gives us insight into the direct correlation between chemistry and sensory!
