Our 2016 "Nuovo" Extra Virgin Cortona Olive Oil is our estate olive oil! It comes from southern Tuscany in the Cortona area from four "oliveti" (olive groves) located in the Tecognano, Ossaia, Sodo and the Cemetery hillsides. The olives have been harvested gently and pressed at a small local frantoio (olive mill) that uses the latest technology to preserve the nuances of the olives. Nuovo olive oil is bottled right after pressing, without filtration or settling and has a distinctive vibrant green color, intense fruity flavor and a peppery long finish. Only available once every year, this olive oil is best consumed within three months of opening. Over time it is normal for this olive oil to have some sediment at the bottom of the bottle. This just assures you that it has been bottled very quickly after pressing to preserve the fresh taste. At first the taste will be very intense, mellowing out over time and naturally clearing to a transparent chartreuse color.
Each bottle is 250ml. If you would like to order more than 5 bottles, please order using the CASE item.
