Oio de Buščina



This farm has reached such a good level over the years to be one of the top in the world. Run by Enio Zubin since 2000, it is situated in Umag, a little town and port in the north-western part of the Istrian coast. The estate consists of 44 hectares of specialized olive grove with 8,800 trees. In the last harvest 450 quintals of olives and 55 hectolitres of oil were produced.  

The Flos Olei guide recommends the very good Extra Virgin selection Oio de Buščina - Črnica from Organic Farming, which is an intense limpid golden yellow colour with delicate green hues. Its aroma is ample and rotund, rich in vegetal notes of artichoke and wild chicory, together with hints of aromatic herbs, especially mint and rosemary. Its taste is exuberant and strong, with a flavour of lettuce, black pepper and a strong almond finish. Bitterness is definite and pungency is distinct and well balanced.
