Description Taggiasca olives ready to be milled. These come from the olive orchard of a friend over Dolcedo (Imperia, Liguria - Italy).

The November extra virgin olive oil has a peculiar taste: it is "spicy", really good to enhance a salad. Who want a milder taste must use January oil, or even use oil of the previous season. Of course it is possible to appreciate these difference only buying evoo directly from small producers. The good oil is like the good wine: it can never have the same taste, from year to year, except if manipulated industrially.

Olive taggiasche pronte per essere "frante". Queste vengono dall'oliveto di un amico sopra Dolcedo (IM). L'olio extravergine di novembre ha un gusto particolare: è "piccantino", veramente ottimo per dare un tocco in più ad un'insalata. Chi vuole un gusto più leggero deve usare olio franto a gennaio, o addirittura quello della stagione precedente.

Naturalmente è possibile apprezzare queste differenze solo acquistando l'olio extravergine direttamente dai piccoli produttori. Il buon olio è come il buon vino: non può avere sempre lo stesso gusto, da un anno all'altro, tranne se manipolato industrialmente.
