It is a native variety growing around Alberobello, Locorotondo and part of Valle d’Itria (400 metres above sea level); it has a medium-sized fruit with a bitter and spicy flavour and it is ripe when it turns red – reason why it gets the nick-name of ‘Red Olive’.
Fairly fruity, it immediately releases sensations of green apples, freshly-cut grass, oregano and almonds.
Initially spicy, it leaves room to tones of bitterness reminiscent of grass and almonds, then slowly leads to a well -balanced), unique taste.
It happily accompanies white meats, cooked greens but also green and caprese salads and vinaigrettes.
