From the organoleptic point of view the oils of this variety are very fruity and aromatic, well rounded in their smell of fresh grass, hazelnut or banana, sometimes with a sharp taste on the palate.
Abandoned along the last Century, we have revamped those olive trees lands to honor a way of living which had the Olive Oil as one of its foundations for health.
With a extremely low production, these olive trees, come back to produce its fruit as soon as man has come back to take care of them. We have noted that they were just waiting for us for centurias.

Grown at three thousand feet MSL, those olive trees are free from plagues, diseases, and resist temperatures between -17 and 40 degrees Celsius in the severe continental climate of Castilla, along centuries.
