The more that I experiment with this evoo the more it impresses me. First of all, it’s a vegetal tasting evoo with light notes reminiscent of ripe banana and flower. And it is very spicy to sip. Because its complexity and tasting intensity is moderate but its spiciness is high, it’s not in my bodega (cellar) as a sipping evoo. With that said, this evoo is phenomenal at pairing. So far, I’ve experienced it with Margherita pizza, tomatoes, salad, rice, chicken and hummus. Because its tasting intensity is moderate, but present, it adds a bit of flavour to a dish while the main flavour of the dish is maintained. And interestingly, that high spiciness when sipped isn’t present when paired. So an evoo that isn’t on my sipping list but is bang-on for pairing with a lot of foods.
