Quintaesencia (quintessence) is perfection itself, the elixir of life that exists to such a degree of such purity that it transforms everything into gold. In ancient times, alchemists used this word to refer to the soul or to aether.

La Cultivada Quintaesencia is a blend of 3 monovarietals: the bitterness of the picual with the lively spiciness of the hojiblanca and the persistent, almondy fragrance of the arbequina. Th result is an oil of medium-high fruitiness with predominantly green overtones. Exceptionally fragrant, with herbaceous notes and very reminiscent of vegetables, along with aromas of green apple and wild flowers. Favours of leafy greens and green almond on the palate of which persist in the aftertaste, together with a hint of bitterness and a progressively spicy finish. Pairs well with leafy greens, veggie, in stews, paellas, with cured Manchego.

Produced in La Campiña, Córdoba, Andalusia, Spain at the Molino de Santa Ana y San Carlos Estate.
