An old authentic Istrian sort; most esteemed oil, light green to golden yellow in color with an intense fruity taste and scent of olive fruit, aromatic herbs and artichokes and apples exhibiting a pleasing balance of bitterness and piquancy.
It is an excellent addition to fresh raw food, especially to raw dark fish, particularly tuna and salmon, adding a special Mediterranean charm to the traditional Japanese sushi. It also gives extraordinary charm and fullness to quality fish, seasonal grilled vegetables, mushrooms, and various sea fruit risotto. Sweet baked apples sprinkled with this oil are a winning combination of sweet delight and health.
