This Olio Nuovo Extra Virgin Olive Oil has long been a culinary tradition in Italy. The name refers to the best and freshest unfiltered oils made from olives harvested during the first two weeks of the season. Because the oil is so new, it tends to be green, grassy, and fruitier tasting than the other oils that sit longer. This oil is Ultra fresh, so to get the best flavor, you should use it up within a few months.
Our Olio Nuovo~Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil is great as a finishing oil. Try it on steamed veggies, lentil salads, pasta, goat cheese, grilled or seared fish, herb salads, or your favorite soups. In Tuscany, where the tradition originates, people grill crusty bread over an open flame and souse it with Olio Nuovo for a simple, delectable lunch! It is high in anti-oxidants, peppery, fruity, and quite bitter. Enjoy this very special treat.
The Olive Groove's extra virgin olive oils are some of the finest in the world, required to meet our strict chemistry and organoleptic standards, our quality is impeccable.
