An autochthonous Istrian olive variety traditionally found in southern Istria next to plantations of the buža variety as a pollinator. Its small fruit bears pleasant fresh aromas of green pepper, green tomato and wild radicchio, with a pronounced herbal scent. It has a moderate fresh bitterness and a pronounced spiciness and, along with buža, offers the special recognizable feature of Istrian olive oils. It is a powerful oil that leaves a strong impression.
Food pairing recommendation: It pairs well with dishes with pronounced flavours as well as desserts.
It pairs nicely with venison dishes, prepared in various ways: in the oven or in a stew, with a tip to add a little rošinjola oil on top of a ready meal as a finishing touch.
Furthermore, it pairs very well with fried white fish, aged cheeses and all kinds of creamy desserts and ice creams.
