This variety is produced in the region of Jaen and gets its name from the pointed ends of its leaves. Thanks to a high content of polyphenols, it’s very stable and can withstand cooking temperatures of more than 190° Celsius (190° Fahrenheit).
It is intense, very fruity, and full-bodied, with aromas of fresh olive and dried fruit, and notes of tomato, green grass, fig and green wood.
It’s ideal for any dish requiring relatively high cooking temperatures (stews, pan-fying). Olive oil lovers will appreciate how it complements salads and cold dishes.
The altitude and dry climate of Finca Portier are perfect for growing premium-quality, organic Picual olives.
