>K Millennial Olive Trees Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Slowfood

This Extra Virgin Olive Oil only comes from registered and certified native Farga olive trees over 1000 years old, and many are over 2000 years old.


Bouquet, quite fruity at first, then weakens to become a light, gentle but complex aroma of unripe green apple and Conference pear-skins. Fresh citrus overtones of lime suggesting a lightness on the palate.

On the palate, it is so light that it does not seem like oil, the green bouquet tones become that of ripe lemon peel. No tingling or bitter taste, just a citrus sensation with perhaps a touch of spice. Traces of fennel and Amaretto surface. Visually, this oil is a golden-straw colour, and is smooth flowing which coul lead the false belief that it has no body either on the palate or in bouquet.

As a whole, this oil is exciting both for its contents and its packaging. An example of the love of olives, of oil and respect for a demanding consumer who will not be disappointed with this purchase.

The extra virgin olive oil > K Milennial Olive Trees is considered one of the strongholds of the Slow Food movement.

Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment.
