The Peruvians have rapidly become some of the finest producers of premium grade EVOO in the world. They have a soil and climate that are ideal for growing olives, and this southern Italian varietal is unmatched in many ways. This medium-robust oil exhibits leafy green flavors of sweet grass, green banana, and black pepper. Overall, it exhibits a pleasing, moderate, spicy herbal flavor that Coratina is famous for.
It has a high 640 polyphenol count without the intense bitterness and pungency some other Coratina oils exhibit. The great flavor and intensity make it ideal for bread dipping, salads, and top-dressing vegetables.
Pairs with any Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and any Wine Vinegar. Check out our "Perfect Pairings".
