What is gourmet olive oil?

Gourmet olive oil, also known as Premium, is extra virgin, of a higher quality and flavor. Also standing out for an extraordinary and unique fruity aroma. This is its main quality.

The depth of its aroma hints at nuts, since you can feel flavors such as almond, forest fruits, eucalyptus, walnut, vanilla, chamomile, citrus and many more.

It receives this name because it is part of the classification of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and is obtained after using for its manufacture, green olives that have not yet finished ripening.
