Monterosa olive oil wins medals in Japan

Monterosa Premium Picual Olive Oil won a gold medal and Monterosa Premium Selection won silver

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Monterosa, produced in the Algarve, won a gold and a silver medal in the Olive Japan 2019 international competition, on April 12th. In this competition, more than 700 olive oils from 22 countries participated.

This «is the most prestigious international competition for extra virgin olive oils in the Asian continent and one of the most important in the world», highlights the Algarve olive oil brand.

Monterosa Premium Picual olive oil won a gold medal and Monterosa Premium Selection won silver.

This is the fifth consecutive year that Azeite Monterosa has won gold in this international competition. This succession of awards reflects the «recognition of the quality and excellence that these farm oils produced in the Algarve have at an international level», highlights the producer.

Monterosa Olive Oil is sold in a black silkscreened bottle of 500 and 250ml, as well as a tasting kit with five 20ml bottles.

In addition to the range of Premium Maçanilha, Cobrançosa, Verdeal and Picual monovarietals, there is also a Premium Selection, which is produced with a mixture of varieties selected by the Monterosa team's internal panel of tasters.

In Selection olive oil, «the predominance of the Frantoio variety is highlighted, which is originally a famous Italian variety that has been spreading throughout the entire olive-growing world».

The producer launched on the market about a year ago a new entry-level product, “Horta do Felix”, which combines a selection of cultivated varieties.

This oil is «very elegant, with an intense fruity aroma on the nose and a slight bitter and spicy, with notes of dried fruit in the mouth» and is intended «especially for customers on the Horeca channel who are looking for high quality oil».

This product is available on the market in 250 and 500ml bottles.
