Extra Virgin Olive Oil PRIMUM, glass bottle 0,5lArt.No.: LCH23 Product number: 8421401820066
PRIMUM is made with handpicked olives, picked one by one to select the best olives in the first few days of the harvest campaign, a process normally reserved to harvest olives for direct consumption. The olives are then cold pressed with traditional decantation within 24 hours of their harvest.
Harvesting of olives for regular La Chinata oil can extend into early December, while the olives for PRIMUM are picked only within the first 10 days of October. The result is a high polyphenol antioxidant count of about 30% greater than the already excellent La Chinata olive oil. (Less than 0,15% acidity.)
Its intense green colour (characteristic of the first days of the harvest), intense fruity aromas of apple and banana, full body, total absence of bitterness and slight spicy flavour make PRIMUM stand out among any other existing olive oils.
PRIMUM is an unfiltered extra virgin olive oil. It is bottled straight from the press with the traditional decantation method, so a light deposit may form at the bottom of the bottle.
It has a remarkable fatty acids composition, marked by a high rate of unsaturated in relation to saturated fatty acids, and also a very high content of oleic acid, more than 75%, which very few olive oils attain. These qualities make this olive oil very stable, with high nutritional and therapeutic value and really delicious.
For maximum enjoyment we recommend using it in crude form, for hot or cold dishes. It is exquisite as well used in preparation of hot dishes like fish or vegetables.
PRIMUM is presented in dark glass bottles of 500 ml, limited edition of 2000 numbered bottles each year.
