Olio Nuovo means "New Oil" in Italian, and is a celebration of the beginning of harvest season for olive oil. This oil is literally harvested, pressed, and shipped to us within weeks. This "Olio Nuovo" was harvested and pressed in October of 2019 by our produer in California, the fourth generation to work his family's groves, some of the oldest in California, and the most decorated producer in the United States, winning over 300 top awards, including five “Best of Shows” in California.
This oil is exclusively obtained from the ascolano varietal of olive. It is a bold, complex oil with big fruit flavors of pear and apple and robust finish. In initial testing, the polyphenols (part of what make extra virgin olive oil so healthy and good for you!) came in at over 400. We have limited quantities so order yours today.
