Extra virgin olive oil
An outstanding Istrian olive oil, Punta Cissana is a signature product of Edi Družetić, an internationally renowned expert from Pula. This extra virgin olive oil is produced from a special selection of exclusively autochthonous varieties (male Buža, female Buža, Buža puntoža and Rosignola). Obtained from a 150-year-old olive grove, the oil was named after the prestigious Punta Cissana site near Barbariga, which boasts a millennia-old olive-oil tradition. The cultivation of olives in the region is believed to date back to the first Greek colonies in the northern Adriatic – the remains of a large ancient oil mill, the oldest in the Mediterranean, were discovered in this very olive grove. Oil from such a location is proven to have first-class properties.
The oil is very fresh, characterized by pronounced green notes and a complex, pleasant scent. it combines the marked aroma of olives with the aromas of grass, artichokes, tomatoes and chicory, and to a lesser extent, green almonds and redcurrant. The intensity of the olive fruit flavor is less intense, while the fresh green impressions predominate, as previously described. Bitterness is slightly more pronounced, reminiscent of leafy greens and green pepper spiciness. It has very good fluidity.
Pairing: wild sea bass fillet, potatoes spiced with Mediterranean herbs, beef chateaubriand.
