Chiquitita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
A new cultivar originating only recently in Spain in 1991, the Chiquitita is a cross between the iconic Spanish Picual and Arbequina varieties. Ours is sweet, mild, delicate and creamy, with almond notes, no bitterness, and a delightful fruity finish. It has one of the lowest FFA scores* we’ve ever seen! 200ml bottle.
*The limit for free fatty acid in extra virgin olive oil is 0.8% (0.8g per 100g). A low FFA is desirable, and Glorious only carries oils with a FFA score below 0.4%. . Free fatty acid speaks to the condition of the fruit at the time of crush. The higher the FFA, the greater the indication of poor quality fruit such as damaged, bruised, overripe, insect infestation, overheating during production or too much of a delay between harvest and crush.
