Olea B.B.

  • Flos Olei
  • Excellent

As usual Olea B. B. has proposed a wide and excellent range of extra virgin olive oils. Run by Bosiljka Belić since 2002, today this beautiful farm has a 12-hectare specialized olive grove with 4,500 trees. In the last oil harvest 400 quintals of olives were produced, equal to a yield of 45 hectolitres of extra virgin olive oil. There are four Extra Virgin selections Oleum Viride: Selekcija Belić and the three Monocultivar, Buža, Ascolana Tenera and the excellent Istarska Bjelica, chosen by the panel. It is an intense limpid golden yellow colour with light green hues. Its aroma is definite and complex, with elegant fragrant hints of mint, basil and rosemary, together with rich notes of artichoke and lettuce. Its taste is ample and rotund, with vegetal hints of chicory and spicy notes of black pepper and almond. Bitterness is powerful and pungency is distinct. It would be ideal on bruschette with tomatoes, swordfish carpaccio, artichoke salads, marinated tuna, asparagus soups, pasta with sausages, boiled octopus, barbecued game birds or animals, hard mature cheese.
