Description 

2012 harvest
500 ml bottle - Andalucia, Spain

The 100% Picual extra-virgin olive oil. Picual is a Spanish variety representing about 90% of the olive trees planted in the Jaen region of Andalucia, Spai , the largest olive growing area in the world. Vibrant and rich in color, the almost phosporesence neon yellow color of this oil is amazing! Its color alone makes all other oil dull yellow in comparison. The flavor is wonderfully olive - eee, with a charateristic brightness, strong pepper and slight bitter component.

About the Producer
Based in Andalucia, Castillo de Canena is a family-run company committed to producing superior extra-virgin olive oil. From start to finish, from thier 16 century castle in the foothills of the Sierra Mágina, the Vañó family supervises every element of the olive oil-making process: cultivating, milling, storing and packaging the best of the harvest.

The Picual Family Reserve
For generations, the family has followed the tradition of reserving the best of each olive variety's harvest for private use, making a special "Family Reserve." Castillo de Canena now shares it, in limited amounts, with all those who enoy a particularly fine extra virgin oil.

Although the Picual olive is usually associated with Andalucia, it is also found in other parts of Spain, and now all over the world, due to the hardness of the trees, and stability of the oil. The fruit is small and round, and the tree of medium size, and with very dark-green leaves.
