This is extraordinarily flavorful oil, awarded by Los Angeles International extra virgin olive oil competition (2012) and Olive Japan International extra virgin olive oil competition (2013). This extra virgin olive oil is made from the famous Koroneiki olive and farmed without fertilizer, pesticides, or irrigation. The crop yield is small, but the result is an entirely natural olive with concentrated flavor and unsurpassed quality. Mani Terra uses traditional methods to stone grind and cold press its oil, retaining the nutrients, antioxidants, and aromatics that would be destroyed by modern extraction methods. It can be used in salads and cooking.
Flavor: Fruity with a touch of pepper at the end
It is infused with the famous Provencal lemon from Nice . The microclimate at this location on the French Riviera creates ideal conditions for the cultivation of this delicious fruit which appeared in the Bay of Nice in the middle of the 15th century. We use the macerated zest to obtain this delicate, fruity and very slightly bitter oil.
Fresh, sweet and hot garlic, fresh thyme from Provence give this olive oil flavor and character. It reveals a large number of preparations such as grilled meats, leg of lamb, grilled vegetables, mashed potatoes, chanterelle omelette. You can also pour a few drops on a goat cheese or dip a piece of country bread as an aperitif.
That thyme, rosemary, lavender, marjoram… from Provence.There are so many! We have made a mixture to our taste, ideal for magnifying your grilled or simmered meats (beef, lamb, pork, poultry), for seasoning green and mixed salads.
We have extracted the natural flavor of the Périgord black truffle. It brings an exceptional aromatic power to this olive oil, which makes it a high quality ingredient : chestnut cream soup with foie gras balls, gourmet autumn salad, fresh tagliatelle.
