Olive oil Castillo de Canena picual First day of harvest
Castillo de Canena is a unique family business, involved in the whole process of creating the extra virgins: from the tree to its commercialization. The farm is located in the province of Jaén. It works under the API certification, an environmentally friendly way of agriculture, halfway between traditional and organic farming. The farm passes monthly audits that certify compliance with all standards. Currently, most of the farm is being reconverted to organic farming.
First Harvest Day is a limited edition of the oil harvested on the first day of the harvest, which in the case of extra virgin olive oil occurs between October and November. This unique gourmet oil pays homage each year to a personality from the arts, sciences, and sports of our society, having a privileged space on its label.
In its fifteenth edition, Castillo de Canena First Harvest Day pays tribute to the Spanish driver Carlos Sainz, two-time world champion and winner of the Princess of Asturias Sports Award. A man forged in the effort and who triumphs in the world of motor racing; without a doubt a reference for several generations and a great figure within international sport. Sainz represents the values of the Jaén farmer: effort, sacrifice, and the constant search for excellence. This limited edition is of only 10.000 bottles of First Day of Harvest.

On the nose it has a medium fruity green olive and leaf note, a fragrant and quite complex aroma, balsamic with touches of mint and some citrus.
