The Favolosa olive, or FS-17 variety, was developed in Italy in the 1980s and exists primarily in small plantings worldwide. This oil is an excellent example of a well-balanced, medium-robust mouthfeel and flavour intensity with predominant notes of fresh, spicy, green herbs – especially green apple – as well as mint, black, and chili pepper.
