Country / Region: Italy / Sicily
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 a lovely, distinct fruity aroma, and clear floral hints. Pungent and spicy with a slight fleeting bitterness. This oil has middle notes of creamy green almond and artichoke, and some subtle confectionary notes. It is a perfect choice for those that crave an olive oil with a little bite and fruitiness rolled into one. A versatile olive oil that is best suited to warm dishes, meats & vegetables.
