An old Istrian sort; high quality oil presenting itself in an intense yellow green color, fruity scent and sweet taste of olive fruit, almond and apple, moderately bitter and piquant. Such balanced oil is splendidly combined with grilled dark and white fish, particularly with salmon and tuna, and salad combining octopus, sea fruit, beans, horse beans, and chickpeas.
It also enhances the taste of various types of minestrone. This oil does not pretentiously impose the strength of its quality; it just vigorously uplifts and enriches the taste and scent of meals. It is ideally combined in emulsions with honey, citrus fruits, and various pepper sorts and used as topping for cheesecake.
