This Year's Oil
This year's harvest all over Italy was quite meager. The summer was blistering hot with very little rain. Tomatoes, wine, wheat, beans, almost all products were effected. Thankfully, the quality of the oil this year in Umbria is superb! The intensity of the summer insured no infesting mosca (the pesky fly that saps quality), and the olives developed with rich intense flavor. We were able to get all of our oil from the early part of the harvest – mostly green with a small percentage of green-black.
The small harvest brought a stinging price increase, but we have engaged a new logistics company that delivered savings in transportation costs, and the price for the Euro is down from last year. The result was a very small 78 cents per liter increase in the cost for the 5 liter tin and only one dollar for the .75 liter bottle.
Casa de Case is one of the only sources in the United States of true Italian olio nuovo.
We fly it in direct from Frantoio Olivestri in Umbria as soon as it is crushed.
All of our olio nuovo is from Frantoio Olivestri
in Petrignano del Lago, Umbria.
Olivestri produces exquisite Gold Medal winning olive oil from select hand-picked olives. Located near the Tuscan border not far from Cortona and the famous wine producing town of Montepulciano, Petrignano imbues the best of Tuscany and Umbria in its oil. If you are not familiar with this artisinal producer, you can read about them here.
All of our olio nuovo is completely unfiltered so that you can enjoy it the way they do in Italy.
For a precious few weeks after crushing, olive oil is wonderful pungent, hot-peppery, and intensely fruity quality. This is called olio nuovo, literally "new oil". All of Italy celebrates the olio nuovo with festivals in the frantoio (olive mill), and bottles of the intense oil appear in every restaurant.
Come to the Festa!
Celebrating the arrival of the olio nuovo.
