Originating from Liguria, Northern Italy, particularly the region of Imperia (home to the Modesti producer), the Taggiasca olive thrives in this area due to the ideal combination of soil, water, and climate.
The fruit of the Taggiasca variety is typically small to medium in size, with an elongated oval shape, a slightly thicker underside, and a smooth surface. Its flesh is dense and retains firmness over time. Notably, the Taggiasca olive's color ranges from dark to shades of green, purple, and intense brown. Their distinct appearance and unique flavor profile make them highly sought after.
Taggiasca olives are highly esteemed for their sweet and harmonious taste, often accompanied by a subtle bitterness. Their enduring firmness makes them well-suited for preservation in oil or brine. Pickling in brine, a traditional method using a solution of water and salt, is an ancient and reliable technique for food preservation.
Renowned for its sensory attributes, the Taggiasca olive is esteemed as one of the finest table olives, while also being an excellent choice for producing extra virgin olive oil.
The fruity presence of the Taggiasca olive pairs up nicely with seafood dishes, fresh salads and citrusy flavors. Serve them as a stunning antipasto accent paired up with creamy, mild cheeses like mozzarella or provolone and a crisp white wine.
