Nicolas Alziari Intense and Fruity Olive Oil (Red Tin) - 2020 harvest

500ml - Nice, France


This olive oil is the magical blend of a variety of olives that are harvested early, still green. Unlike his classic blue tin -- which is 100% late harvest olives.
 
The taste:

To the nose there is almost no odor to inhale. In fact, you might need to pull liquid up in order to get a hint of anything.

To the lips (yes lips), as you dip your upper lip and sip in, the lip sends you sensory signals about a warm feel, all enveloping. It is quite unusual and even minutes later you feel as if your lip has gained a wonderful friend.

To the mouth the flavor has both a top and a bottom. Buttery smooth, with a touch of hazelnut, along with the olive light green and a lower touch on the outer edges of the tongue. And if you take a big gulp you can get a hit of spice dead center in the back of your throat.

This Nicolas ALZIARI olive oil is subtle, smooth, sophisticated and complex. One spoonful is not enough to really understand all it has to offer! This is one way cool oil to have.



Note about harvest dates: In the nothern hemisphere, olives are harvest and pressed between October and December.  Which means the current harvest is actually last year. So, for example, if we are in 2019, the current harvest year is 2018.
