Ravece – Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Golden yellow with green reflections, this oil has an intense fruity flavour with distinct notes of tomato, fresh herbs and artichoke. The result is a strong, full but balanced structure, combining a harmonic bitter and spicy aftertaste.
A perfect addition to soups and pastas (crude, after cooking), marinated seafood, carpaccio, grilled fish, grilled and roasted meats, as well as legumes and vegetable courses. Also particularly suited to accompany fresh cheeses such as mozzarella.
