Macanilha Superior is a great EVOO from artisan producer of olive oil in the Eastern Algarve, Portugal – Monterosa.
Monterosa olive orchard is located deep in the quiet sun-scorched hills surrounding the town of Montcarapacho. Ancient Romans pressed their oil right here, leaving millstones, ruins, and thousand-year-plus olive trees behind.
Monterosa protects olive oil heritage - the olives are picked by hand in autumn and immediately pressed in their own mill.
Monterosa continues to be unwavering in its dedication to an environmentally sustainable integrated system that uses no chemical or synthetic products for pest control, strives for the lowest possible carbon footprint, and fashions compost from its own recycled pulp, grass clippings, and finely shredded pruning.
Macanilha is a native olive variety for Algarve, looks like a small apples and has a great flavor and taste. Very elegant, richly fruity with a fresh cut grass sensation. Monika, the founder of evoopremium.shop loves it:)
