About This Year's Oil (2016)
The oil this year is not as abundant as last year and there were some problems with mosca (flies), but overall, the oil is good and we were able to secure enough for our needs.
The Price & Timing for Fulfillment
Because last year's harvest was spectacular and we had some price reductions, this year we have had to respond to the smaller harvest and insert a modest price increase.
We expect our shipment to be shipped around November 7th and to be airborn about a week. That would get it to us about the 15th of November. Fantastic! About the same as last year.As soon as the oil is received we will do our best to get orders out as fast as possible. We like to ship the East Coast orders first,
because it takes a longer time in transit.
We fly it in direct from Frantoio Olivestri in Umbria as soon as it is crushed.
Our olio nuovo is from Frantoio Olivestri
in Petrignano del Lago, Umbria.
Olivestri produces exquisite Gold Medal winning olive oil from select hand-picked olives. Located near the Tuscan border not far from Cortona and the famous wine producing town of Montepulciano, Petrignano imbues the best of Tuscany and Umbria in its oil. If you are not familiar with this artisinal producer, you can read about them here.
All of our olio nuovo is completely unfiltered so that you can enjoy it the way they do in Italy.
For a precious few weeks after crushing, olive oil is wonderful pungent, hot-peppery, and intensely fruity quality. This is called olio nuovo, literally "new oil". All of Italy celebrates the olio nuovo with festivals in the frantoio (olive mill), and bottles of the intense oil appear in every restaurant.
Come to the Festa!
