Mis Raíces Premium Roots Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This extra virgin olive oil comes from Bajo Aragón, an arid region where olive cultivation has flourished since Roman times. The small region has its own DOP designation because of the ideal conditions for growing olives and the unique varietals that grow there. This oil is made with 100% Empeltre olives, a rare Spanish varietal. The olives are pressed within hours of harvest, which occurs at the beginning of October. Mis Raíces Premium Roots is a medium fruity oil with aromas of fresh grass, tomato, and artichoke. Slightly astringent and spicy, it finishes in notes of almond, walnut, and fennel. It is a delicate and low intensity oil that truly highlights the unique qualities of this special olive. Best used as a finishing oil on mild foods like salads, white fish, cheese, and bread.
