By Marqués de Valdueza

Merula presents a medium-intense fruitiness of green olives, distinguished by aromas of apple, banana and red forest fruit. This EVOO boasts notes of mature tomato and the freshness of cut grass, with tones of green almond shells rounding out the oil and bringing great harmony. The sweet start evolves into a spicy finish that characterizes the oil's great personality. At the same time, the persistence in the mouth and fruit aromas bring roundness and versatility to the oil.
