Finally this extraordinary 2013 olive oil has arrived. It comes from groves near Ciudad Real in Castile-La Mancha. From cornicabra, picual, hojiblanca and arrbequina olives. The SUBTLE has little evident bitterness and less pepper (pungency), and is redolent of fresh herbs and apple. The INTENSE offers that brilliant early-harvest bitterness and peppery pungency, and a rush of autumnal vegetation and green leafiness. Both are completely lovely. This oil has won medals at Europe’s most prestigious competitions as well as the New York International Olive Oil Competition this April. EGO SUM (meaning ‘I am’, in Latin) is a drizzling oil, a finishing oil, for use at the table, and with all manner of foods, cooked or raw.
