Nocellara Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: 2023

Country / Region: Italy / Sicily

Intensity: Medium - Robust

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: Flavour characteristics for this year's harvest include floral undertones and notes of creamy green almond. Lingering astringency and Szechuan peppercorn on the finish. Great with warm dishes, legumes, soups and meats!
