Details

Magna Olea is an extra virgin olive oil obtained directly from olives and solely by mechanical means. Its main caractheristics are aromatic fruitiness with green olives and fresh grass. Magna Olea has its presence with a smooth bitter-sweet sensation to start, giving place to an exotic melting pot of flavors, with notes of apple, banana or tomato, dry fruits (almond an walnut), ending with a longstanding spicy. Every year different notes and intensities make each harvest unique although keeping a strong identity. Because of the early harvest and cold extraction during the olive oil production, from olives just a small part (10%) will turn into olive oil which does Magna Olea production be in a very limited and single batch.

Characteristics:
Sensory analysis has to come with the chemical analysis to determine the quality and stability of extra virgin olive oil over time. The analysis results are indicative of the conditions in which the entire process of harvesting, storage and extraction were performed. The bitter and spicy are organoleptic sensations derived from the antioxidant polyphenols. The type of containers, the place and the length of storing (preferably on the 18 months from production date) are key factors in the oil's polyphenol content and that is why it has to be stored away from light, heat, contact with air and sources of intense smell.

Awards:
Participate in exhibitions and concours is part of our history, proving the excellence and our high quality standards. In the last 10 years Magna Olea is consistency awarded by the best international prestigious concours, almost always with the best prizes.
