This Frantoio is a robust, high polyphenol, green, spicy olive oil, that is very bitter and pungent too! It has very little ripe fruit flavor, but it is floral and bursting with complex herbaceous flavors dominated by green tea, mint, nettle, and black pepper. This Frantoio adds a lot of spicy, herbal zing to many rich flavorful foods.
