Sigona’s February 2012 olive oil of the month

Sigona’s February 2012 olive oil of the month

Cobrançosa

from Portugal

This oil…

  • is beautifully floral, herbaceous and fantastically fresh
  • comes from the most coveted of all indigenous Portuguese varietals
  • presents a robust, fruity flavor up front, followed by a well-balanced middle featuring flavors of ripe olive and a hint of herbs; it finishes with a slight, fleeting pepper sensation on the back end
  • boasts a 355 polyphenol count; polyphenols have beneficial effects on cholesterol, blood pressure and coronary disease risk
