Castillo de Canena Amontillado is the result of the passion for two outstanding gastronomic products such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Jerez wines. For the first time an Arbequina EVOO is refined in wine barrels. To make it, we first chose an American oak barrel from Amontillado Solera from one of the most renowned wineries in Spain: Lustau.
Inside these casks, our Arbequina oil is impregnated with the complex aromas of the old Amontillado wine, still lingering in the staves inside the cask. The result: the perfect fusion of the sensory notes of Amontillado and Arbequina EVOO. A unique gastronomic experience!
With an elegant and distinguished design, this oil combines the freshness of arbequina EVOO with the fascinating aromatic profile of amontillado wine, with hints of toasted nuts, noble woods, ripe fruit and mushrooms.
Serving suggestions: Perfect for pairing with a wide range of dishes and recipes, from the most classic to the most avant-garde. Salted and baked fish, grilled or baked poultry and pork, mushrooms and boletus, carpaccio and shrimp or tuna tartar, grilled foie gras, partridge pâtés, meat pies, mojama, ling and mullet roe or clams, cockles and oysters, whether raw, canned or pan-fried. Not to mention the magnificent sensory experience when paired with dark chocolate or nuts.
