Gianfranco Becchina has produced an exceptional Olio Novello, always rich, luscious, grassy, and moderately peppery.

Olio Verde Novello was freshly pressed and bottled during October 2019, while the weather was warm and sunny.

Notes from the Frantoio: This extraordinary oil has a fresh, grassy nose with a buttery approach. Well balanced with soft aromas of grass and artichoke lead to increasing notes of artichoke, green walnuts, and herbs, especially Italian green parsley. All mingle on the tongue with each aroma and flavor component in balance.

Suggestions for Use: Use in green salads with hearty, bitter greens such as kale and collard greens, as well as over steamed romanesco and brussels sprouts. Drizzle over fish and vegetables hot off the grill or over a traditional Sicilian caponata.

Texture: Green, thick, and very rich.

Gianfranco Becchina's 1998 award winning oil repeats again with the 2018 Harvest with this outstanding Sicilian oil. Smooth taste, unfiltered. Limited quantities. The oil is produced at the estate of Prince Pignatelli at Castelvetrano in Sicily using the Nocellara varietal. The 100% Nocellara del Belice olives are hand-picked from the trees. An exceptional oil.

According to Deborah Krasner in "The Flavors of Olive Oil", Olio Verde is "...beautifully colored and winsome estate-grown artisanal oil from Southwestern Sicily is nutty and herbal, with complex taste nuances."

A tradition of excellence.
