Extra-virgin oil Izbor (Selection) is produced from indigenous Istrian varietal Buža, the most widespread cultivar in Istria. Depending on the harvest time, Buža can have a medium to strong fruity flavour, whereby Izbor falls under the category of intensely fruity olive oils. The oil is clear with the intense golden colour and green reflections, distinguishing itself through its balanced bitterness, piquancy and durability of odour and taste. It pairs easily with every meal.
