Like all unfiltered oils, Protoleo has one feature - after some time, the sediment settles at the bottom of the bottle. Don’t worry, this is normal, it indicates the purity of olive oil. Also, please note that unfiltered olive oil loses its taste after opening the bottle very quickly. Therefore, it is better to consume it within a few weeks after opening.
Protoleo is an olive oil made from Kolovi variety and wild olives. It is the wild olives that give this oil its unique piquant taste, intense aroma and such a bright, rich green color.
Protoleo has a smooth full-bodied taste with a bitter finish and a fruity-herbal aroma with hints of freshly-cut unripe olives.
This olive oil pairs well with juicy steak, pasta or grilled fish with vegetables.
