Ravida Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2011 (500 ml.) ~ SALE
Ravida has an aroma of freshly mown hay, which some describe as herbal and grassy. It has a smooth aftertaste, indicating that it is pressed late in the season as with most Sicilian oils. The oil is blended from three Sicilian olive varieties: Nocellara, a slightly fruity eating olive; Cerasuola, tasty and full-bodied and light-green; and Biancolilla, for distinctive color and fragrance. Unfiltered, this oil is very low acidity, as well. We especially recommend it for cooking with fish and vegetables.
