With an acidity of less than 0.3%, the oil has an intensely fruity aroma and persistent flavour reminiscent of freshly crushed olives. The finish is decisive and vivacious, while harmonious on the palate. These characteristics make it a versatile Extra Virgin Olive Oil for everyday use.
The Coratina olive is naturally very high in antioxidants which gives it a peppery pungency. The high levels of polyphenols also make it very stable. The green aroma, reminiscent of a Tomato plant, and the complex flavour with a slight spicy aftertaste makes this oil great for recipes, especially simple ones, like Caprese salad or grilled vegetables.
