#one is strong as a latin lover embrace. Some experts look for the “three coughs” when they taste an Extra Virgin Olive Oil; #one is likely to win their favour with its pungent* finish. It is an awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oil made of single estate olives, 100% Italian, from Umbria. In this area, the temperature leap between day and night in late summer and early autumn stimulates the olives to produce a lot of polyphenols to protect themselves. The care the producer put in farming, harvesting, crushing and bottling, does the rest. The result is an extremely low level of acidity (0,12 at the time of tests) and a very high level of polyphenols (442mg/l), qualities that translate into one word: excellence. Several studies show that a daily intake of 20 gr protects you from cardiovascular disease.
This strong Extra Virgin Olive Oil is amazing with cooked veggies, spicy soups and sauces, beans and cereals but also with roasted meat due to its strong personality. When you feel adventurous it is unforgettable on grilled bread.
