First place winner at the highly prestigious 2013 Mario Solinas awards from the International Olive Oil Council, Estepa Virgen is pressed from fresh, unripe olives picked at the beginning of the harvest when the olives just begin to ripen on the trees and the color begins to turn red, known as “envero”. This produces an oil that is intensely fruity with moderate intensities of bitterness and spice. A delightfully complex oil for the discerning palette, this oil comes with an attractive box as pictured and makes an ideal gift for the gourmet foodie.
