Steeped in the Italian tradition of creating a "New Oil," our 2020 bottling can be summed up in one word - GREEN. With phenomenal notes of green olive, raw artichoke, freshly cut grass, and the herbaceous flavors of bitter greens and green tea, there's an ever so slight hint of cinnamon from the Leccino olive that enthralls us. Balanced with just a bit of bitterness so you know it is Olio Nuovo with a pungency in the throat that reminds you why old traditions are good to keep.
There's no waiting allowed when we're creating this Extra Virgin Olio Nuovo. The olives are picked straight from the tree then go to the Frantoio (our onsite mill), and then to the bottle without resting and without the solids settling out. It's an intensive process and we love the result.We blend several of our Italian olive varieties to make our Olio Nuovo. The Italian name for the olive mill, Frantoio, is also the name of Tuscany’s most prominent olive variety. The Frantoio olive is the backbone of Olio Nuovo and gives the it the fruitiness, balance, and pungency that are hallmarks of classic Tuscan-style olive oil. Limited in production, Olio Nuovo is only available for a few short months following the autumn harvest. One step we take to ensure it is of the utmost quality is by adhering to the strict Olive Oil Commission of California and USDA standards.
