This Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced near Arbeca, the most arid territory in Catalunya, Spain. Arbeca is the region that gives the namesake to this variety of olives; Arbequina olives. The Arbequina olive is virtually the only variety planted here and it has a long history in the area. The olives that survive the cold weather in winter and the drought in summer are the key ingredients to this outstanding olive juice.

“Extra” is the highest grade for olive oil - the best you can buy. It means, that the olives are freshly squeezed to get a natural product. There are no further treatments than washing, decanin, centrifugating and filtering.

Judy Ridgway, author of Best Olive Oil Buys Round the World, describes this EVOO as, “Nuts, then wet grass and herbs followed by a touch of lemon start the aromas of this excellent oil. This is followed by light citrus fruits and more herbs with sorrel and watercress. Quite strong pepper kicks in and out leaving a long herby and lemon aftertaste Arbequina olive provides the sweetness and fruitiness for the oil."

Romanico is rated 4.5 out of 5 among the best 100 olive oils. “GOLD STAR” at the London Great Taste Awards in 2009.
