Extra virgin is the highest quality and most expensive classification of olive oil. It must not have any errors. Fruity taste, slightly spicy taste with a spicy finish. It must be produced exclusively by mechanical methods without the use of any solvents and at temperatures that do not damage the oils.
It is not easy to produce extra virgin olive oil. The producer must use fresh olives in good condition and carefully monitor each step of the process. Extra virgin olive oil doesn't stay that way forever: Even under perfect storage conditions, the oil will deteriorate over time, so it's important to enjoy it within its two-year shelf life.
