LITTLE BLACK DRESS DUO: PICUAL + DENISSIMO

Like a "little black dress" this versatile pairing works for every occasion, and compliments any food it accompanies. The duo combines one of our finest robust extra virgin olive oils, Melgarejo Picual, and our silkiest five-barrel aged dark balsamic, Denissimo. These two represent the best of the best and we encourage you to have them on hand while entertaining this summer. Whether you're doing a bread dipping, or finishing your finest grilled steak with a drizzle of either one, or both, these two are the highest standard you'll find. 

This beautifully balanced Melgarejo Picual is sweet and fruit forward with notes of peach plus tomato leaf and artichoke in the centre. Pleasantly astringent with a hint of bitterness and lingering pepper sensation. High fruitiness scores and visually stunning. 

Our Denissimo is made from Trebbiano grape which is naturally caramelized and cooked down to an even greater extent, and aged for EVEN longer in the traditional “Batteria” of Modena, slowly aged in five different casks comprised of mulberry, ash, oak, juniper, and cherry wood. This exquisite and exceedingly rare 1.36 density balsamic is extremely complex, boasting flavour notes of cherry wood, dried fruits, raisins, figs, along with hints of dark chocolate and malt. Serve with your finest cheese plate, drizzle over melon or berries, use as a finishing glaze for roasted meats or poultry, adorn your grilled vegetables, make your desserts swoon. There isn’t any culinary application in which this balsamic won’t shine.
