Il Monello

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Characteristics:

A “Novello” (from the new harvesting season) Extra Virgin olive oil is produced from the first olives harvested early in the season when the taste is fruity and peppery. Most often this oil comes from south of Italy where olives are harvested as early as October.

A real Novello Extra Virgin olive oil is usually unfiltered, and  Monini “il Monello” , a seasonal product, has a distinct taste of green tomato with a fresh grassy fragrance.
