Fresh oil, straight from the vines!
As well as being 100% Italian olive oil and completely natural, the Olivieri oil is packaged and delivered in its freshest state.
Once a year, immediately after the new oil is crushed at the frantoio (olive oil press and factory), we bring it in directly. We are one of the only sources in Ireland making available this rare and wonderful olio nuovo, literally "new oil.". This is a once-a-year opportunity. One of the great pleasures of being in Italy in November and December is tasting the oil just as it comes from the press, All of our olio nuovo is completely unfiltered.
About the Oil:
This oil has a unique, rich, fruity aroma capturing the essence of the wild herbs nearby, such as wild fennel, broom brush and rosemary. Olivieri olive oil is cold-pressed and grown without the use of fertiliser. This produces oil that is both extraordinarily aromatic and light in taste.It has a light flavour with a slight hint of vanilla. Soon after harvest you will notice a delicious peppery heat to it – this is completely natural and fades somewhat over time.
The olive trees that produce this oil are hundreds of years old and are situated high above the Adriatic coastline, near the family home, in what is now known as The National Park of Gargano. The variety of olive is the ‘Ogliarola Garganica’, which is an endemic species of olives only grown in Gargano, making this oil truly 100% Italian.
It can be ideally used for dipping with bread, salads, in cook and for baking.
