Product Description

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

This gift box contains one .75 lt. bottle of Frantoio Olivestri Siloro Olio Nuovo.  There is a neck tag on the bottle explaining the details about olio nuovo. The gift box is very handsome and sophisticated. it is imported from Italy, and is heavy with textured ribbing. Consider also the two bottle olio nuovo gift box; it has a nice discount.

 

This oil 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.

  1. The best Olive Oil available 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Nov 2015

    I've been ordering olio nuovo for many years for friends and for myself. It's outstanding: even good on toast in the mornings. Whether salads or some complex main course, the flavor it imparts is the best I've ever tasted.
