Why does it deserve our mention?

It has an intense greenish yellow color and manages to  balance perfectly both slightly sour and spicy in its taste, representing the best of the Picual variety . This oil is 100% natural and one has to bear in mind that in order to make 1 litre of olive oil it takes eight to ten kilos of ripe olives. This variety of olive oil has a high resistance against oxidation and has a high percentage of oleic acid which is very beneficial to our cardiovascular system. The cultivation of the oil takes place in the foothills of Sierra Morena under the influence of the Guadalquivir River Valley, 400 meters above sea level, this combination is a decisive factor for good ripening which is also aided by the fact that the region enjoys a year-round average temperature of between 16 and 18 º.
