This olive, grown in Apulia, Italy, is a good oil producer, like all Ogliarola cultivars. This olive and Cellina di Nardò olives are used to make PDO Terra d'Otranto olive oils.
The designation of origin 'Terra d'Otrant' is reserved for the extra virgin olive oil obtained with at least 60% of the olive varieties Cellina of Nardo and Ogliarola Leccese. The oil produced has a green or yellow colour with a fruity aroma with notes of freshly cut grass, thistle, artichoke and chicory. It leaves a slightly spicy or bitter afertaste depending on when it was harvested.
