Description: This season's Chilean harvest of the Picual is a flawless example of Spain's most popular olive variety.

The Picual is the most commonly planted olive variety in both hemispheres, and is the most widely cultivated variety in Spain. It has proven succesful in many regions outside of Spain as well.

Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This Chilean harvest of the renown Spanish Picual is big and bold.
