The "Novello” extra virgin olive oil is bottled when it is still in its “unfiltered” state. This product appears dull due to the suspended olive flesh particles. This quality of new oil retains the fragrance and taste of freshly-crushed olives. It is a seasonal product sold only in the period from November to February. The presence of any sediment is not a defect. Rather, it is a natural attribute of the product. When used cold, it enhances the taste of all kinds of dishes. It is a 100% Italian product..
