 Extra Virgin Olive Oil Piro. Harvest 2020: Taster's Notes

Piro's aroma is redolent of fresh herbs followed by the scent of green almond. On the palate, notes of grass and tomato leaf with hints of black pepper. A magnificent, robust oil, both complex and balanced.

Due to its exceptional phenolic content, Piro. is great for cooking at medium and medium/high temperatures, poaching and roasting. It gives its best as a finishing oil on soups and stews, grilled vegetables, meats and fish, and crudités. 

Flos Olei is unanimously considered the most important publication in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil sector globally.
