Joana (1500 - 1564) was the last heiress of the lineage of the Cardona, the powerful Salt Lords. The influence of the dukes of Cardona during centuries led to them being known as kings without a crown. From el Pallars to les Garrigues, they had vast expanses of olive groves in their domains. Documented proof has been found that Joana granted the use of various mills of the duchy for administration by the people. Joana of Cardona was not only known as a generous duchess but also for boosting the production of oil in Catalonia.
Corbella has a medium green fruity profile, with ripe notes. In the mouth, it is balanced between bitter and spicy with sweet notes, and an appreciable astringency that does not interfere with the profile. Secondary aromas of vegetable, with connotations of artichoke almond and ripe tomatoes are present. Notes of almond and walnuts may be detected in the mouth. It is an exclusive variety of our region, with a high content of polyphenols and oleocanthals.
