Italian Ogliarola - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The Ogliarola trees are secular, with a large “body”. They mainly grow in the Puglian Hills of Gargano and Salento area, just a few miles away from the Adriatic Sea (Eastern Coast of Italy). They are harvested early, when their color is still green, turning brown. The olive oil has a deep fruity/grassy aroma with a “white fruit” (apple and white peach) taste followed up with a light almond aftertaste. This cultivar has a reputation of maintaining a consistent taste throughout the harvest year.
