Coratina Gran Cru Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Country / Region: Italy, Puglia

Intensity: Robust

Description: The Coratina varietal is one of the most important Italian olive varieties and is now widely cultivated in many olive growing regions around the world and in both hemispheres. Our 'Gran Cru' Coratina is a beautifully made robust, early harvest olive oil from Puglia. The olives for this limited harvest oil were picked by hand at the optimal time from selected trees on the grower's personal estate. For this particular season with all the challenges in Italy, it is a rare, small batch pressing of the finest olives.

Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: On the palate the Gran Cru Coratina is extremely complex, displays herbaceous qualities, and presents notes of green apple. It leaves you with a unique floral finish. Clean, crisp and pungent! Big Coratina Aroma! A beautiful assertive oil for those “big” dishes, roasts, pastas, grilled meats, etc.
