Olio Nuovo from Séka Hills
Freshly Pressed 2016 Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil
A limited offering of the first crush of the olive oil season from Séka Hills in Capay Valley, California
Tasting Notes: This olio nuovo is vibrant green, well balanced and full of grassy and buttery notes, hints of green almond and green tea, and a lingering whisper of pepper.
Uses: Olio nuovo is meant to be enjoyed right away, so pour with abundance. For a taste of heaven, douse a piece of warm, toasted country bread in Séka Hills Olio Nuovo and finish with salt and pepper. It is also exceptional drizzled generously over sautéed green vegetables like kale, broccolini and romanesco—just add a sprinkle of fleur de sel. Use this freshly pressed California olive oil to garnish a salad of creamy avocado and juicy citrus segments—or try substituting it for the butter in mashed potatoes or other vegetable purées such as cauliflower, parsnip or carrot.
Basically, drizzle it on everything and take a tablespoon or two for health—olio nuovo has polyphenols galore. As the Italians say, during olio nuovo season, you should have a glossy chin all day long . . .
