Señorios de Relleu was founded by the experienced Eliseo Quintanilla Almagro, a pharmacy technician from a family with agricultural traditions, ans his enthusiastic son Hugo.
The beatiful farmhouse Masia Teuladi, built in 1918, is the heart of the estate, including today 63 hectares of olive grove with 12,000 trees. In the last harvest 1,400 quintals of olives and 200 hectolitres of oil were produced.
There are three very good Extra Virgin selections Señorios de Relleu – Coupage, Medium, Intense and Delicate, chosen by the panel. It is a beautiful intense limpid golden yellow colour with slight green hues. Its aroma is ample and rotund, endowed with fruity hints of médium ripe tomato, white apple and banana, together with fresh fragant notes of basil, parsley and mint. It´s taste is complex and fine, with a vegetal flavour of lettuce and celery. Bitterness is distinct and pugency is present and harmonic. It would be ideal on mayonnaise, barley appetizers, steamed spiny lobster, bass capaccio, marinated piper, chickpea puree, fish cous cous, fried squids, sea bream tartare, soft fresh cheese, oven cookies.
