Premium Olive Oil, balanced and elegant, made from a very selective and limited production of olives of the Argudell variety, which are harvested at the optimum moment of ripeness, during early November (these are early olives, when the fruit starts to ripen). The production of this Virgin Extra Olive Oil comes from centuries-old olive trees from the Protected Designation of Origin of l’Empordà (Girona). This product is autochthonous (indigenous) and is clearly a fine Mediterranean olive oil.

Bright golden in colour with greenish reflections, this olive oil is ideal for tastings in order to appreciate its sensory virtues and properties.



The CENT-i-98 Olive Oil is the result of a very limited selection of Argudell olives from our family-owned estate and it is produced by merging traditional wisdom with modern technological means. It is characterized by having a very low acidity (0.11%), a value that indicates it to be an exclusive Extra Virgin Olive Oil, since the lower the acidity, the greater the quality of the oil. It is an indicator that the production process has been carried out with close attention to highly demanding quality parameters, such as the time between harvesting and grinding the fruit in the oil mill being reduced to 1 hour, thus maintaining all of its vitamin content (such as vitamin E) and antioxidants.

The olives are also harvested directly from the tree, so they do not touch to the ground. All of this attention to detail allows us to elaborate an olive oil with totally fresh olives, which are harvested at their optimum point of ripeness, to achieve an intense fruity olive oil, with a very high aromatic complexity and marked green notes on the nose and aftertaste. Obtaining a first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, at a maximum temperature of 21 °C, and strictly through the use of mechanical procedures and ecological treatments, which do not modify the aroma, texture and natural composition of the Olive Oil, which is then filtered from the first moment to avoid impurities that can decrease the quality of the oil.
