Olio Nuovo (Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

Size

Available for a limited time only.

Our extra virgin olive oil is produced in the Tuscan style by blending four varieties of organic olives, Frantoio, Leccino, Maurino, & Pendolino, each ripening at a different rate. In order to customize our blends and the flavor profile of our oil, we harvest the olives by hand and carefully time the harvest so that we achieve a higher ratio of green to black olives in each batch. Green olives are higher in polyphenols and are what provide the vibrant green color and spicy long finish we love while black olives lend the buttery rich undertones you will find in our oil. Though green olives produce less oil than black, we sacrifice yield for flavor. 


Once harvested, the olives promptly leave our farm and are cold-pressed at McEvoy Ranch. McEvoy presses several batches for us in just a few short weeks. In this season's blend 60% green, 32% mixed (half-ripe), and 8% black olives are represented.

The first thing you'll notice with our 2020 Olio Nuovo is the clouded gradation of color from chartreuse to emerald and then comes the potent scent of all things green, from fresh-cut grass, matcha tea, kale, and even to underripe bananas. With the slightly waxy mouthfeel and a buttery round texture on the top of your palate, it finishes with a peppery bite and a sharp burn you feel at the back of your throat on the finish.

Olio Nuovo is to be enjoyed quickly and without haste to enjoy the heightened flavor and polyphenols that are represented in the fresh press. Perfect on almost anything, we recommend experimenting wildly and with exuberance.

Serving Suggestion: Perfect on Vanilla ice cream with Maldon salt, grilled bread

Olio Nuovo is wonderful. Since I ordered extra to send out as holiday gifts to friends, I just wish its label can clearly state it's Olio Nuovo with harvest date as the other competitor company I've usually ordered Olio Nuovo from for years.

Great Gift

I got this as a gift for my friends and they reported back that it's super tasty and is "very floral"! Would purchase again - olive oil is always a nice gift for foodie friends.
