When the olive matures, the skin turns purple to black, and some olive producers then pick up olives. Waiting for more extended time means that olive will give more olive oil.
Late harvest olive oils tend to be more golden in colour as the chlorophyll content declines. At this stage, the polyphenol levels in olive oil decline. Compared to early harvest these olive oils are less bitter, more floral, less pungent, and have a shorter shelf life.
Silky yet bold EVOO with a big peppery finish. Made from local, late-harvest Caninese olives. Excellent for sautés, sauces, cheeses, breads, pastas, and more!
