Olive Oil. Olives still not completely ripe yield Brolio’s “liquid gold.” The oil’s cold extraction is secured in a press of a traditional pattern using stone grinders. Brilliant green in color, with fruity aromas of freshly cut grass and green olives. Well-structured but delicate on the tongue; the initial slight bitterness quickly becomes tangy without ever being invasive. Together with the fruity aromas, this leads to a balanced and pleasantly fresh oil.
