Olio Nuovo: New Harvest 2017 Tasting Notes 
An impressive harvest sure to delight all olive oil lovers, novices and experts alike. The estate extracts an impressive complexity from the Nocellara del Belice olive (also known as Castelvetrano). Aromas of grass and artichoke leave a softly sweet impression in the nose, while forward notes of artichoke, green walnut and herbs—green Italian parsley!—mingle on the tongue. A spectacularly polished oil, with each aroma and flavor component in even balance.

The Estate
Olio Verde’s creator, Gianfranco Becchina, set out to accomplish what many considered a follia (“folly”): develop a world-class olive oil in a land where quantity had always reigned over quality. He purchased and restored a historic agricultural estate on the outskirts of Castelvetrano, Sicily (owned for six centuries by the noble family Tagliavia Pignatelli Aragona Cortes), carefully revitalizing its 60 acres of 300-year-old olive groves. One of the first monocultivar (single-varietal)  olive oils in Italy, Olio Verde sings in exaltation of the intensely green, nutty (noce means “walnut”) Nocellara del Belice olive.

Best Two Recipes for Olio Nuovo from AUTENTICO: cooking Italian, the Authentic Way

  • Fettunta col Cavolo Nero (page 75)
  • Gelato di Pistacchio, Olio e Sale (page 334)

Rolando raves: Brilliant! A seductive, herbaceous oil with an exotic spiciness that sparkles on the palate. Incredibly full of aromatic herbs—like rolling around in an herb garden! Each year, Olio Verde astounds—it just gets better and better.”
