ILIADA SINGLE ESTATE EVOO KONSTANTELOS - 750ml 25.4 FL.OZ
This new collection of ILIADA Single Estate comes with another special story. This extra virgin olive oil originates from a family-owned olive grove, the Konstantelos Estate, which has been passed down from father to son ever since 1967. Located in the Madourou plains near the Faraklada village in Messenia, the olive grove is situated in an enchanting field, equally distanced from the Ionian Sea as well as the slopes of mountain Geranio. The estate is spanned in an area of 13 acres and it hosts 2,900 olive trees. It is produced in 16.500 numbered bottles and before packing, the oil is kept in a special temperature controlled area inside stainless steel tanks in order to retain its high quality characteristics. This premium extra virgin olive oil comes in an exclusive bottle of 750ml with wooden cork, elegant label with gold print, including a QR code on the label-side which gives all the details of the farm and the farmer. Estate olive oils are prized for their distinctive characteristics which are influenced by natural factors such as the local red soil, altitude, microclimate and olive variety. The cultivation and production techniques add to the individuality of the product's character. Single Estate olive oil, known as Estate Olive Oil, is a type of olive oil that is obtained from olives grown exclusively on an individual farm.
The golden-green drops of this superior extra virgin olive oil hold the long tradition of the Konstantelos family in olive oil making. The estate was originally cultivated by Mr. Giannis Konstantelos Sr. and has been passed down all the way to his grandson that shares the same name. Mr. Giannis jr, states that his family’s olive oil is great due to the microclimate of the area that prevents vermins from contaminating his olive trees, thus eliminating the continuous use of pesticides. “If you combine a long line of family tradition with the ideal ecosystem our region provides, wonderful things can happen.” Mr. Gianni’s son, Panayiotis, is being groomed to succeed his father and become the fourth in line Konstantelos to continue this proud tradition.
Green and ripe aromas and flavors give harmony and balance to ILIADA Single Estate. There are strong grassy, herbal and artichoke notes while at the same time the nose and the palate identifies sweet almond and floral aromas. A lasting peppery sensation lingers on, indicating its nutritional value.BACK TO CATEGORY
