Royal varietal is native to the Cazorla mountains (Jaén, Spain) whose cultivation goes back hundreds of years. Due to the difficulty of harvesting it, this olive varietal has suffered a drastic reduction in its cultivation and it is close to disappearing. Castillo De Canena has recovered this unique varietal in their farm. This EVOO presents for the first time, a ROYAL extra virgin olive oil collected at the beginning of harvest, an “early” one.
Tasting notes: The fruity green olive is complemented with aromas of mature fruits and sweets ones. Fresh grass, green banana, artichoke and, secondly, tropical fruits like pineapple or kiwi. The palate is very delicate and elegant.
Serving suggestions: Perfect for grilled veggies, tomato sauce, fish such as salmon, codfish and meat such as chicken and rabbit.
