Quite a few years ago, my wife and I were enjoying a great meal at the now-closed Enoteca Vin in Raleigh. My wife loved the olive oil and inquired about it. It was called Unio. We looked it up and found it available on Amazon and the like, but never bothered to order any. Then, passing through Lynchubrg, VA the other day, we stopped at a little gourmet market for lunch and found that they had a bottle of the oil for sale. We purchased it, and, after confirming its wonderful flavor, wondered why we waited so long to buy it after that first impression years ago.
I love olive oil, but I’m no connoisseur. This stuff from Spain is great though. It’s light and delicate, with a fruity and faintly peppery taste. Drizzled over some pasta, used in a salad dressing, or simply sopped up with some good bread, it will be much sooner than a few years before we buy our next bottle.
