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 so fresh that even natives to olive oil production areas rarely have the opportunity to get their hands on it. Another reason is the very limited stock we are able to secure each year. Pre-orders go on until we run out of stock.
