What Is Olio Novello?
Olio novello, also known as olio nuovo, is the name used to describe early harvest olive oil. This oil is made from the first olives gathered at the beginning of the harvest season. The early harvest olives are pressed immediately, and the unfiltered result is olio novello olive oil. It's processed for a time period of just a few days or weeks before its release, so it's as fresh from the olive grove as it gets.
Olio Novello Features
Olio novello/olio nuovo is considered to be some of the best olive oil due to its superior freshness and vibrant, robust flavors and aroma. The consistency of this unfiltered, fresh-pressed olive oil is more pulp-like and lush than your typical olive oil.
Customers can expect premium prices for olio novello due to the limited supply of products. These olive oils are only available during a small portion of each year, and they sell out quickly due to the high demand.

In most years the first of the new harvest extra virgin olive oils arrives just after Thanksgiving -- and we commence shipping immediately to you! For the 2022 harvest, we anticipated some delays due to harvest conditions and the continuing challenges of the worldwide supply chain. As soon as our goods are loaded in Italy, we are announcing the incoming selections (and expected shipping dates). Some will be pre-orders.
Update (27 January 2023): Our first Novello selections have sold out. We are continuing to receive new selections from our many producers. At this point in the year, these are each producer's new oil for the new season. These tend to be filtered to ensure a long-lasting quality.
Fresh arrivals, including customer favorites and new-to-us selections, are now arriving weekly.
