The very first Nuovo from renowned Tuscan producer, Frantoio Pruneti, crushed from the season’s very first pickings of locally grown Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo olives grown in the heart of Chianti. This fresh, unfiltered oil is extraordinarily balanced yet robust with notes of green fruit and sweet vegetables, accompanied by pleasant notes of basil and fennel with a strong peppery finish. Excellent with freshly toasted bread, roasted root vegetables, grilled fish and meats, and hearty soups.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT NOVELLO


What is Novello?

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.

What about Novello's flavor and aromas?

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.

How is Novello best enjoyed?

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.

GENERAL


How can you deliver Novello so fast after harvest?

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.

Why pre-order a Novello?

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.
