No, bitterness - along with fruitiness and spiciness - is one of the positive and beneficial characteristics of extra virgin olive oil. It denotes the presence of antioxidants that are precious for our health, such as polyphenols. Its intensity depends on the variety of olives and their degree of ripeness at the time of milling: the greener they are, the more intense and bitter the oil will be.
No, like bitterness, pungency is a positive attribute indicating a high concentration of phenolic substances beneficial to our organism.
No. The olive particles suspended in the Unfiltered Evoo tend to settle overtime and sediment on the bottom of the bottle. This does not compromise the quality of the oil, since these particles are rich in antioxidant substances, such as polyphenols, which initially help to prevent the oil from ageing and are beneficial to our health. However, the enzymes naturally contained in these particles, can overtime, cause the onset of sensorial defects. For this reason, it is recommended that the product be consumed within a short time after opening.
When exposed to temperatures below 10°C, Extra Virgin olive oil tends to crystallize and whitish particles will appear in suspension. It is sufficient to store it at room temperature for the solid part to liquefy. Be careful, however: drastic changes in temperature are never good for extra virgin olive oil and should therefore be avoided.
The date indicated on the packaging of our Extra Virgin olive oil is not an expiry date typically used for perishable products, which, if consumed beyond the limit can cause health risks, but it is an indicative date by which it is preferable to use the product. In fact, if stored correctly, i.e. at room temperature and away from direct light, the oil’s properties are maintains unchanged and can be safely consumed even after the date indicated on the packaging.
The origin of our oils is clearly indicated on each label. Our range is made almost exclusively from 100% Italian olives, including local production certified as DOP Sardegna. The Mediterranean and Podere Verde lines, of EU origin, complete the range to satisfy all consumer levels. For more information, please consult the individual product pages on our website.
