Question: What is Strippagio?
Answer: Strippagio is an Italian word used mostly in connection with the tasting of olive oils to evaluate the quality of them. It is very similar to the English word Slurping which is more often used in wine tasting. Both describe a method whereby you suck air into your mouth to oxygenate the liquid to help intensify the overall aromas and sensory flavours that are released. Two very good descriptive words!
