$39.95

The latest addition to the award-winning line of extra virgin olive oils from Castillo de Canena. Pressed from Picual olives, herbaceous notes of grasses and vegetables prevail in this fresh, lively and expressive oil. Olive leaf, lettuce and artichoke are the primary notes with fresh fruits, tomato vine and a heady touch of green banana and apple on the finish. Castillo de Canena has been making grand efforts on their estate in recent years in order to obtain Biodynamic certification including introducing sheep on their estate, manufacturing their own fertilizer through composting, and enriching the vegetal cover by installing beehives. Biodynamic agriculture is a step forward from the organic farming method. This method is based on the harmonization between the different forces that govern nature and seeks a comprehensive balance of soil, trees, animals and humanity.
