This Carolea from Puglia is a medium green EVOO with a pleasant hint of pungency balanced by its mild bitterness and ripe delicate fruitiness. Notes of ripe caramel apple balanced by its buttery flavors and mouthfeel. Aromas of nuttiness, tropical fruit, and banana make for a great contrast with its flavors of dark, leafy-green nettle, cooked artichoke, and black pepper, all of which make this cultivar complex and unique.
