Olive Varietal: Mission
Being unfiltered, it is a vivid bright emerald green. It smells of fresh olives with aromas of green tea leaves and bay leaves. The taste is of arugula-peppery, green and bitter all at once. It is spicy, herbaceous, grassy, and lively in the mouth. The pleasant astringency leads to a long finish with flavors of green almond and artichoke. Truly like no other olive oil you'll ever taste, it's the freshest EVOO you'll find!
Olio Nuovo means "New Oil" in Italian, and is a huge part of the celebration at the beginning of harvest season for olive oil. This unfiltered oil is literally harvested, pressed, bottled and to us in just a few days of the olives being picked from the tree, making it the freshest and healthiest oil you can possibly get!
Olio Nuovo is like fresh fruit & vegetables, and should be consumed right away to enjoy the fresh flavors and health benefits of its high polyphenols.
Olio Nuovo is a seasonal SPECIALTY. It is only available for a couple of months each year. It is meant to be consumed quickly (within 4 months of harvest date). Our favorite way is as a finishing oil on EVERYTHING because the flavor is soooooo delicious.
Health Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Thanks to its status as a spotlight food in the Mediterranean diet, and thanks to extensive research on its unique phytonutrient composition, olive oil has become a legendary culinary oil with very difficult to match health benefits.
Polyphenols have been shown to function as both antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory nutrients in the body. The very number and variety of polyphenols in olive oil helps explain the unique health benefits of this culinary oil. Because of the high polyphenol levels, as little as 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil per day have been shown to be associated with significant anti-inflammatory benefits.
