Pietre al Monte’s signature Gran Riserva extra virgin olive oil is made with only the best selection of hand-picked olives specially curated from the Il Paretajo estate located in the Chianti Colli Aretini region of Tuscany. The single estate olives are cold-extracted within hours of harvesting and are carefully selected by their experts depending on the quality and taste during each harvest season. The resulting oil is typically dark green in color with a delicately balanced flavor of green olives, fresh herbs and tomato. Prized for its incredibly fresh and signature peppery flavor with a high concentration of polyphenols, this oil pairs excellently with shellfish, grilled vegetables, legumes and carpaccios.

This olive oil comes in gift box.

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.

 
 
Pietre al Monte is a private estate located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy within the prestigious Chianti “Colli Aretini” region. This special piece of land has been cultivated by generations of farmers who grow several varieties of olive trees native to the region. The owners work closely with these farmers within the community to cultivate and produce some of the finest single estate extra virgin olive oils in the world. The olives are meticulously hand-picked in early autumn and cold extracted within the same day at temperatures below 80°F, which ensures the oil’s flavors, characteristics and nutrients remain unaltered. By harvesting early and using only natural production methods, they are able to obtain a very limited quantity of olive oil of the highest quality and concentration of polyphenols.
