My vote goes to Lucques olives. I think they have the best texture (i.e., relatively firm) and a delicate taste.

I've only just discovered taggescia olives and I am enamoured. A small black olive from Liguria, Italy. Full flavored but still delicate with no bitterness, and the shop where I buy them sells them packed in their own oil, which is fabulous in its own right. Expensive but worth the splurge.
