This Spartan family-grown olive oil is cold-pressed, fresh green in colour with a distinctly fruity aroma. It is never blended and has no added substances. High in polyphenols (anti-oxidants), the oil’s full-bodied, chilli pepper-like bitterness will decrease as it ages. There is NO use of pesticides and fertilizers on these particular groves, for the last ten years. Labels, expiration dates and chemical analyses are in accordance with European Union (EU) regulations.
