Messinian Treasure is an Early Harvest Olive oil (Agoureleo) and has herbaceous characteristics with intense fruity flavor and spicy feeling on the throat.
Its color is greenish due to its high chlorophyll content. The greener the fruit, the more bitter and peppery the olive oil produced with more polyphenols (natural antioxidants) and a uniquely pleasing flavor and aftertaste.
Maturity of the olives is a key factor in determining the style and the quality of the olive oil produced.
The harvest period plays a fundamental role in capturing the olive’s best qualities. Olive oil’s quality is strongly linked to the harvest time.
