Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This medium intensty, Early Harvest green Picual is a beautiful Spanish olive oil that bursts with savory notes of green tomato leaf and creamy green tea! A well-balanced olive oil with a slightly bitter center which gives way to a hint of sweet almond and a pleasant pepper finish! Great over any fresh cheese variety, seafoods, and salads. A delightful condiment and finishing oil to use virtually anywhere!
