Huerta Los Caños is an Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil, from Organic production, obtained in Los Caños, an estate that has been in our family since the beginning of the 20th century.
It was back in 1909 that Mr. Lorenzo Martínez and Ms. Adela Fuset purchased, from the Marquise of San Miguel de la Vega, the hacienda “Los Tres Caños”, located between Baeza and La Yedra, with its extensive orchard and the surrounding centuries-old olive grove, for the most part planted in the 17th century, when the building of the house began. Since then, five generations of our family have enjoyed the peace and calm of its thick walls and the silence of the olive grove.
The 1,200 Picual trees grow at a remarkable height of 800 metres above sea level and are arranged following the planting system of old, with large distances between the olive trees.
Our cropping system promotes sustainability and fosters biodiversity, as fundamental factors in all our cultivation processes.
The harvesting of the fruit is carried out at the end of October, when the olives are at an early ripening stage, by means of the manual system of shaking down and hand picking the olives, taking great care during the transfer to the oil press for cold extraction at 20ºC.
Intense fruity oil in shades of green, fresh and deep aromas, prominent notes of freshly cut grass, tomato, banana and raw artichoke on the nose. On the palate, green leaf and green almond predominate, with low-intensity bitterness and spiciness that builds up. Its long aftertaste provides a sweet balsamic sensation.
