One of his major scientific interests is sensory determinants of food acceptability and preference. In particular he has worked on the description of the sensory properties of extra virgin olive oils, on the effect of taste-odour interaction in bitterness perception in model oils and on sensory and hedonic consumer expectation towards extra virgin olive oil. Professor Monteleone is a highly respected expert in the area. He is co-chair of the Italian Society of Sensory Science.

He is presently in Norway for the purpose of collaborating with researchers at Nofima Mat., Make use of the possibility to meet one of Italy's leading scientists within the field.
