Extraction using a modern continuous system, while maintaining a cold temperature.
A smooth, full-bodied olive oil with notes of bitter almonds and tomatoes, with a light spicy hint. A combination of its full, fruity flavour and balanced structure brings out the best the region has to offer.
Due to its smooth and full character, it adds depth to virtually any dish. Particularly recommendable however is its use for seasoning raw and cooked vegetables, light cheeses, fish and to cook thin soups.
STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE
In a cool & dry, dark place, not below 7°C as olive oil starts to solidify at that point. Marinese has a good shelf life due to the presence of polyphenols and its low acidity, however it is best to consume within 1-2 years after the harvest to benefit from the products organoleptic qualities.
