Distinctive taste in olive oil produced from green fruit or fruit that has started to change color. It results from the action of phenolic substances (mainly oleuropein) and we can perceive it, depending on its intensity, through the entrapped tasting nipples on the V region of the tongue. It disappears gradually after the tasting and it should not be considered as a defect.
Distinctive spicy taste in early harvest olive oils, deriving from olives that are still unripe. It results from the action of certain phenolic substances (mainly oleochantal), can be perceived in the entire oral cavity, starting with the pharynx, and gradually disappears after tasting.
