Koroneiki

Koroneiki

Olio Nuovo, or “new oil,” is the first pressed olive oil of the season. When extra virgin olive oil is made from green olives harvested very early in the season and cold-extracted within hours of picking, it becomes a potent, flavorful, healthful elixir. Olio Nuovo is the freshest possible extra virgin olive oil you can find. When you taste  Olio Nuovo, you experience a peppery, fruity, pleasantly bitter burst of fresh olive oil taste. Olio Nuovo also is the healthiest extra virgin olive oil. It delivers a higher level of polyphenols

This Koroneiki was made at our family’s mill in Linares, Jaén, Southern Spain.

The story of our company is also our family’s story. Our commitment to quality begins before the fruit is even picked.

We pre-plan our harvests down to the hour, ensuring the earliest crush of green fruit possible.

Our mill in Spain, Almazara Aguilar, continue to win numerous gold and silver medals at both the New York and L.A. International Olive Oil Competitions for taste and quality.

We look forward to you experiencing the passion and dedication that defines Seasons.

About the Product
This is a Greek olive varietal but grown in Spain.  This is an example of an exceptional, early-harvest Koroneiki with high Polyphenols (684) The aroma is a nice mix of strong tropical and herbal scents. It is a very robust oil that is quite bitter, very pungent, and also very fruity. It is quite complex with many herbaceous flavors, but with mostly the dark green characteristics of cooked artichoke, green tea, nettle, black pepper, and obvious green banana.
Recommended Use
This olive oil ideal for roasting eggplants or potatoes, adding to warm lentil and bulgur salads, couscous salads, pasta, bread dipping or finishing grilled fish.
