Olio Nuovo: few have tried it, but those that have will wait for its arrival every year. A true celebration of olives, Olio Nuovo is the very first pressing of the season’s olives, and its aroma, flavor, and intensity will knock your socks off!
Literally “new oil,” Olio Nuovo is your chance to experience the purest flavor and aroma that an oil can produce. This is truly one to be savored. Intensely round and smooth in the mouth, delivering fruity, peppery notes on the palette, it contains the highest concentration of antioxidants, color, and taste that an olive can give, all within this limited-supply extra virgin olive oil. Made from the Leccino olive - originally from Tuscany, now grown in California, our Olio Nuovo is simply a must-have for your holiday season. With a delicate to medium intensity, the Leccino olive creates a fruity oil marked by gentle flavors of fall spice such as cinnamon, and must be consumed quickly for ultimate enjoyment! That won’t be a problem, for once you take the first sip, you’ll be using Olio Nuovo in all of your holiday recipes.
Whether you’re preparing for the ultimate Thanksgiving feast or shopping for holiday gifts, you will not want to miss out on Olio Nuovo! Drizzle it over garlic bread or atop a fresh garden salad, dip fresh crab into it, or pour it over ice cream and a tart. After one spoonful, you’ll know immediately what all the fuss is about.
We hand-harvested these luscious olives on November 16th & 17th, and we’ve just finished milling them this week. This is your opportunity to experience the freshest extra virgin olive oil California has to offer, available while supplies last. We now have Olio Nuovo available for purchase in bulk at our Sonoma location, so stop by for a taste and we’ll fill your bottle. And starting November 22nd, we’ll have it available for sale in 250mL bottles, online and in our stores. Stop by to get yours now!
