Intense smell of tomato vine leaves and stalks with sweet tomato coulis, mixed culinary herbs, Romaine lettuce, kale and a touch of bitter nuts all give complexity to the attractive aromas
The taste in the mouth is similar to the aromas with plenty of tomato vines and mixed salad leaves with rocket, mustard leaves and a strong culinary herbaceous topping of oregano and wild marjoram. Strong peppery notes fill the mouth with almond skins and tea tannins adding bitter tones to the mix all balanced by the deeply herbaceous tones that follow on and linger into the deliciously long after taste.

This magnificent oil is an excellent choice for enhancing sauces, pasta dishes and soups as well as for mixing and matching with other well flavoured ingredients such as barbecued grills and strong leafy salads and for dipping with vegetable cruditees.
