Made from a classic, ripe Ascolano, a traditional table olive from Italy, that in California is often made into a unique oil; and this is one of the best ever. It has a wonderful floral aroma and an intense peach-apricot-like taste with some nuttiness and butteriness too. It is very fresh, crisp, and zingy because of the green, herbaceous undertone, which gives it a nice, teasing pungency. It is very fresh and the balance is perfect.
