Novello, Italian for "new" (and sometimes called Olio Nuovo), is the name given to early harvest extra virgin olive oil that is freshly pressed from green olives and is a celebration of the beginning of the olive harvest season.
Novello is totally unfiltered with intensely fresh, fruity aromas predominant of green olives, fresh cut grass and herbs. Its flavor is typically robust and spicy with a pleasant, slightly bitter finish. Check each product’s description for indications of the intensity.
There is no better way to enjoy a Novello oil than simply with a piece of warm, crusty bread. Its flavor is so fresh, so unique, you may just want to drink it! Novello is best consumed at its freshest, so don’t be afraid to use liberally with bread as well as in your soups, salads, pasta and other dishes needing flavor.
We partner with some of the world's best producers to bottle a Novello oil just for you. After the oil has been freshly pressed we immediately fly a limited stock to our facilities on the East Coast and all customers with pre-orders get theirs first.
The reason we enable pre-orders for Novello is getting the oil to you as soon as possible. Pre-orders ship the very moment Novellos arrive in our facilities, ensuring you are going to experience an olive oil as fresh that even natives to olive oil production areas rarely have the opportunity to get their hands on. Another reason is the very limited stock we are able to secure each year. Pre-orders go on until we run out of stock. And on top of it all, we offer free shipping for all pre-orders.
Beginning with roots in the Piedmont region of Italy, the Coldani family has been farming in the San Joaquin Valley of Northern California for over 70 years, an area that enjoys the same Mediterranean climate as the olive growing regions of Italy, yet is blessed with the fertile soils and abundant water supply of the Lodi-Delta region. Coldani Olive Ranch utilizes oil derived exclusively from its own olive groves, one of the only producers in the Lodi region to do so. For this reason they are able to guarantee every bottle contains only the highest quality olive oil available and are Seal-Certified by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC). The family's Italian traditions that have passed down from each generation culminate in their continued commitment and care to produce the freshest and finest quality extra virgin olive oil available on the market today.
