Description: A coveted variety native to Sicily! The Nocellara is a common Sicilian varietal that has a firm meaty flesh. It is prized for this and is commonly prepared and cured for use as a table olive, but is also prized for its great quality and fragrant oil. Pressed in only a few short hours after being harvested, this Early Harvest olive oil from Sicily captures all the flavours of the Nocellara varietal and the essence of southern Italy.

Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This year’s harvest of the Nocellara presents the palate with prominent notes of sweet berry, apple and confectionary notes.  It is well-balanced with desirable astringency, pepperiness and a pleasant creamy mouth feel. It is a versatile olive oil that is best suited to warm dishes, meats & vegetables.
