Product Description

This olio nuovo in this set was crushed and bottled in October 2016 and 
air shipped in the first week of November.

 

Delivered in a three bottle-wide handsome Italian made heavy, ribbed top hinged gift box, this treasure includes one .75 Lt. bottle of Siloro Olio Nuovo and one 250 ml (8.45 oz.) bottle of Cavedoni Botte Piccola Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, Italy. Cavedoni is a 5th generation artisanal producer who crafts his balsamic only from natural ingredients, ages it in small wood barrels and insures there is no caramel or other enhancements often found in lesser quality balsamic.  Pared with Frantoio Olivestri Siloro Olio Nuovo, this is an exquisite gift of  two Italian food treasures.

 

The Cavedoni Botte Piccola is an authentic Aceto Balsamico di Modena that is aged seven years. It comes with a dosage cap for finishing risotto, meats, cheese and other fine Italian foods.  It has a nice natural viscosity with a good balance between sweetness and acidity. 

 

The olio nuovo is crushed in October and air shipped as soon as it was bottled. Picking and crushing at this time insures that the majority of the olives are green and filled with flavor.   It embodies all of the character we hope for in new oil: intense fresh fruit taste, a bit sassy and an intense green color.  This olio nuovo is bottled immediately as it is crushed, completely unfiltered.  

 

The olive oil of Olivestri are amongst the finest in the world. They are produced with extreme care, insuring that all olives are crushed within hours of being picked. They are a blend of olive varietals typical of the region: Leccino, Frantoio, Moraiolo, and Dolce Agogia. The frantoio (olive mill) is in the Umbria town of Petrignano del Lago near the shores of lake Trasimeno, very near the Tuscan border and the towns of Cortona and Montepulciano.  Here the Colli del Trasimeno (hills of Trasimeno) are soft and rolling creating a microclimate that imparts a gentle, creamy texture to the oil. Even though the nuovo has quite a peppery finish, it is still void in bitterness, making it suitable for a wide breadth applications.  

 

This olive oil carries the D.O.P. Umbria - Colli del Trasimeno certification, but the olio nuovo bottles do not carry it on the label because the inspectors for the D.O.P. zone do not arrive at the frantoio until late January -- and we have already been enjoying the oil by then!

 

In order to enjoy its freshness, we recommend using it while it is still young. As it ages, it will still be great olive oil, but the exuberance of its youth will be ever more delicious on vegetables, grilled meats and drizzled over soups.
