Nocellara and Biancollila extra virgin olive oil is a superior oil obtained by cold mechanical processes and without filters. It is an organic, unique product with a colouring that can range from yellow to deep green and a very low acidity that remains constantly below 0.5%. On the nose, it has a medium intensity olive fruitiness accompanied by notes of almond, green tomato, cut grass, artichoke and sometimes herbs. The taste is bitter, slightly spicy and with a hint of sweetness.
The polyphenol content is high, so consumption of this oil helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, while the high content of highly digestible fats helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar.
