A new cultivar originating only recently in Spain in 1991, the Chiquitita is a cross between the iconic Spanish Picual and Arbequina varieties. Ours is sweet, mild, delicate and creamy, with almond notes, no bitterness, and a delightful fruity finish. It has one of the lowest FFA scores we’ve ever seen!
