Buza

The oil obtained from the "queen" of indigenous Istrian varieties – buza female. Since ancient times there has been a saying that this is a "gentleman's" oil. Its refined aromas are dominated by green almonds and artichokes with additional grassy aromas and those of tomatoes and aromatic herbs. It is a well-balanced oil, with moderate bitterness of green almond and radicchio and green pepper pungency, and a very fresh, mild green colour.
