This harvest of the Favolosa/FS17 represents our highest phenolic olive oil in this season’s collection. It is an early harvest production with a beautiful, grassy bouquet and is intensely aromatic. Pleasant bitterness complements this complex but balanced oil which has notes of dry grass, green olive, and a high fruitiness score. It is an excellent example of this Italian variety. Perfect for big dishes, roasts, grilled meats, and for those who enjoy bold and big flavours.
