One of the world's best olive oils. The aroma of Morellana Picuda oil is rather intensely fruity. Morellana Picuda is the result of over one hundred years of work and experience of the producer and the Lopez family. The result is an absolute test winner olive oil of exceptional quality for the most demanding palates, which is recognised worldwide.
PICUDA Olive: This olive variety is typical for the region around Cordoba. The taste of extra virgin olive oil from Picuda olives has an authentic personality. Its organoleptic qualities are based on the characteristics that define this olive variety. In particular, it offers a fruity flavour with a certain almondy note. The result is a fresh and delicate juice, pleasant on the palate, with a mild and fruity aroma. The oil has an extremely low acidity (< 0.20%) and a very high polyphenol content.
Producer: Sucesores Hermanos López is a pure family business in the 6th generation, founded around 1840 in the olive heart of Spain. The finca is located in the south of Spain between Córdoba and Granada, where olive trees and people have lived together for thousands of years. Today, the sixth generation of the López family has taken up the challenge of modernising the business and combining the long family tradition with the highest demands of olive cultivation. As a consequence, the family business works constantly and meticulously to produce olive oils of the highest quality. The result is the world's best olive oils. One guarantee for this exceptional quality is the "integral processing". This means that the entire production process, from the intensive work in the fields, cultivation and harvesting to the cold pressing of the olive oil and bottling of the final product, is carried out in-house in the company's own oil mill.
Part of the olive groves have now been converted to organic farming and each finca is worked and controlled with care and respect to get the best out of the olive trees in the foothills of the Sierras Subbeticas Natural Park.
At Hermanos Lopez, the result is an olive essence of Mediterranean culture that is appreciated all over the world. Only by controlling the entire process from cultivation to packaging can products of the highest quality be created. Hermanos López guarantee the production from the cultivation of the fruit to the extraction of the oil and the final packaging.
