Intensity: Medium - Robust
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 2021 harvest season.
Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This harvest of the Cerasuola presents the palate with fragrant citrus notes, a savoury creamy artichoke center and bitter herbs. It has high amounts of Oleocanthal and Oleacein which impart an astringent, spicy mouth feel creating a very distinctive and lingering peppery sensation. Experiencing this gives you insight into the direct correlation between chemistry and sensory in this robust but balanced olive oil.
