All year long we look forward to the moment when olio nuovo arrives in all of its fluorescent green glory. This is the first extra virgin olive oil of the season, pressed and bottled immediately after harvest. It’s olive oil at its freshest and most intense, with silken texture, robust, spicy flavor and aromas of artichoke, black pepper, green apple and freshly cut grass. Use it lavishly and as soon as possible.
This was a great year for olio nuovo, and we are excited to offer a selection of outstanding oils straight from our favorite producers in Italy and California. Celebrate these outstanding new arrivals in the Tuscan style by eating plenty of fettunta: toasted bread rubbed with raw garlic, drenched in olio nuovo and sprinkled with salt.
Olio nuovo is a unique holiday gift that makes every meal a special occasion. Give generously. Pour abundantly.
