This extra virgin olive oil is made from 100% Arbequina olives which are harvested in early October - fifteen days earlier than what is typical - thus intensifies the flavor of the oil. With its more concentrated taste, the oil is characterized by a balance between flavors of herbs, ripe fruit, almonds, apples, tomatoes and bananas. It is ideal for seasoning raw food, salads, grilled fish and desserts.

Located in the Valley of Tietar in Caceres, Extremadura, Spain, the Pago Baldios San Carlos family has been linked to agriculture since the 17th century. The unique microclimate of the valley makes it possible to harvest fifteen days earlier than usual, giving their products an outstanding fruity flavor. The olive groves, located in the foothills of Sierra de Gredos and situated amongst raspberry, orange and cherry trees, drink the crystal clear waters provided by the almost perpetual snows of Pico Almanzor Mountain and ripen under the rays of the Extremadura sun. This extraordinary location allows their oils to reach minimum levels of acidity and gives their products the unique fruity aromas. The oils and vinegars of Pago Baldios San Carlos continually garner some of the most prestigious awards in the world and are beloved by some of the best Michelin Star chefs in Spain.
