A Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil, yellow-greenish in colour, smell and fruity aroma with notes of apple, tomato, green ear of corn and almond, wrapped by the bitter and spicy sensation being the end long and persistent.
From the traditional olive groves in the region of the Douro Superior valleys, the most fresh and best tended olives are carefully selected and picked by hand at the perfect moment of maturity. From the cultivars Verdeal-Transmontana, Madural, Cobrançosa and Cordovil, they originate this superior olive oil with excellent organoleptic quality.
Location: Fonte Longa, 6430-062 Mêda, Portugal.
Cold Extraction in a certified Ecological Mill.
Extraction of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil ‘Ollivus is made in cold at a certificated ecological mill, so that the production process of the olive oil is pure and genuine retaining its genuine characteristics, not harming the Environment and public health.
Being ecological means, basically, an extraction system in two phases (centrifugation at controlled temperatures) with a maximum of hygiene, where the pomace oil absorbs nearly all dirty waters thus preventing their deposition in the Environment.
This working process respectful of the Environment and public health, allows fully extract of the existing oil in the olive and ensures greater control of the product’s intrinsic quality.
