Àvia Rosa Argudell oil is a superior category extra virgin olive oil.
The variety is Argudell, native to the Empordà-Costa Brava area.
Its tasting notes are fruity and somewhat flattened.
Although it is suitable for cooking, it is recommended to be used raw, where aromatic nuances appear in the final aftertaste and do not interfere with the overall perception of the product.
Spain is by far the largest exporter of extra virgin olive oil in the world, producing more than three times the quantity of Italy, and is responsible for nearly half of the world’s production in total. This prominence is nothing new with olive oil production in the country dating as far back as the second millennium B.C. and a plethora of archaeological evidence proving Spain had been supplying the Roman Empire with olive oil.
Although the country has a 4,000 year history of olive oil production, it is in the last 25 years that Spanish olive oil has undergone a true revolution. While in the past the country held a strong reputation for sacrificing quality over quantity, Spanish producers today are making some of the word’s best olive oils, utilizing the country’s abundance of local olive varieties with their broad range of flavor profiles.
It is no surprise that the many premium brands in Spain have seen a fair share of international awards in recent years. Since 2008, Spanish olive oils have received five top-three finishes at the prestigious IOC’s Mario Solinas Awards including “Best Olive Oil in the World”
