Product Description

This olio nuovo was crushed and bottled in October & November 2017 and 
air shippted in the second week of November.

This gift box contains two .75 lt. bottles of Frantoio Olivestri Siloro Olio Nuovo.  There are neck tags on the bottles 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, and has a dramatic clam shell hinged front opening. You might also Consider the Italian Treasures, a combination box with one bottle of olio nuovo and a beautiful bottle of balsamic vinegar.

 

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. This is so good it's almost illegal 5 Star Review

    It's hard to imagine you're not biting into these delicious olives, but then you don't have to deal with pits. Save it for dipping, alone on your salads, or drizzled over cooked foods...but they're just a transport method for this amazing olive oil. I buy the gift pack and keep both for myself - I'm worth it
