Freshly Pressed 2018 Harvest Olive Oil

Tasting Notes: The 2018 Olio Verde Olio Nuovo is unfiltered and bottled right away, which accounts for its lush, green hue. This year's brought an impressive harvest sure to delight all olive oil lovers, novices and experts alike. The estate extracts an impressive complexity from the Nocellara del Belice olive (also known as Castelvetrano).

This freshly pressed olive oil delivers aromas of grass and artichoke and forward notes of artichoke, green walnut and herbs like green Italian parsley. A spectacularly polished oil, with each aroma and flavor component in even balance.

Uses: Use in green salads with hearty, bitter greens such as kale and collard greens, as well as over steamed romesco, Brussels sprouts, broccoli or broccoli rabe. Drizzle over fish and vegetables hot off the grill or over a traditional Sicilian eggplant caponata. Olio Verde Nuovo also adds a punch of flavor to any recipe featuring tomatoes, capers, or anchovies. It's perfect with pasta.

What is producer Gianfranco Becchina's favorite way to use his Olio Verde Nuovo?
"I have indulged by pouring abundant quantities over salads, grilled vegetables, and grilled fish as well as over anything I eat."

Read why the LA Times says Olio Nuovo makes "a symbolically and seasonally perfect Hanukkah ingredient — and not a bad holiday gift."
