Bio Orto's Organic 'Coratina' EVOO is highly regarded for its robust flavor and distinct characteristics. It is made from olives harvested from the Coratina olive tree variety, which is primarily grown in the southern region of Italy, particularly in Puglia.
What sets Coratina EVOO apart is its intense and fruity flavor profile. It is known for its strong and peppery taste, with prominent notes of green herbs and a pleasant bitterness. The flavor is often described as robust and complex, making it a favorite among olive oil connoisseurs and chefs.
Coratina olives are known for their high polyphenol content, which contributes to the oil's distinct flavor profile and potential health benefits.
