Sensorial Profile

Intense green fruited extra virgin oil, very rich in secondary aromas, with olive leaves and mixed vegetables flavors, like artichokes. The bouquet presents mainly the dominating sensations of spicy, bitterness and astringency, although there persists a clear note of sweetness which contributes to the maintenance of a pleasant sensorial balance.

Global evaluation

Early bearing productive cultivar. It is quite drought-resistant but frost-sensitive. Tolerant to “Olive Leaf Spot” (Spilocaea oleagina). It has a very small fruit which ripens between “Arbequina” and “Arbosana”. “Koroneiki i-38” produces commercially appreciated extra virgin oils, with characteristic intense green color, rich in oleic acid, polyphenols and bitter components that contribute to its long self-life.
