A sweet mellow taste, without the sharpness or bitterness characteristic of the olive oils produced in the south of Spain. The tasting of this olive oil is an authentic pleasure to the palate.
A pronounced mature fruity aroma. A very high fatty acid content. In this respect, it is one of the very best extra virgin olive oils in all of Spain. One should keep in mind that, in the region of Sierra de Gata, most olives are destined for direct consumption as table olives.
