Novello, Italian for “new”, 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 robust and spicy with a pleasant, slightly bitter finish.
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!
Typically oil this fresh is only experienced by those lucky enough to live amongst the olive groves at the very beginning of the harvest, but we wanted to share the experience with you by flying them over right after bottling.
