Power & Freshness! This bright green olive oil is produced from Picual olives picked green at the beginning of the harvest. Monva olive oil is one of the best olive oils in Andalusia, fresh and powerful, it reveals intense aromas of cut grass on beautiful peppery notes in the finish. A must for all lovers of olive oils with character!

It is in the natural park of the Sierra Mágina massif that the Monva estate has been established for 4 generations. In this mill, the olives are crushed less than 12 hours after harvesting at a temperature below 20°C to obtain powerful and complex aromas, making this Grand Cru unique. This exceptional batch of an incredible bright green has a high content of chlorophyll and antioxidants.

Note that this exceptional Grand Cru is one of the richest in polyphenol concentration (445mg/Kg) in the Oliviers & Co selection.
