NOVELLO OLIVE OIL
THE BEST EXTRA virgin olive oil
First Green is our most unique extra virgin. It goes under the name of "olio nuovo" (in Italian) or "Novello oil" which stands for "new, novel oil." This is since it's obtained from an early harvest of the olives when they're still green and unripe.
Novello olive oil is a premium quality olive oil that is well-known for its exceptional taste, aroma, and health benefits. This olive oil is made from the first cold press of the olives, which is why it is often referred to as “extra-virgin” olive oil. Novello olive oil is considered one of the best olive oils in the world.
HIGH NUTRITIONAL VALUE
This EVOO is an elixir and our most refined product. High in polyphenols and flavors, it has a very limited production. Novello olive oil is rich in nutrients that are essential for maintaining good health. It is a rich source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are known to lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It is also an excellent source of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body against cell damage and reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer.
First Green is obtained from an early harvest of the olives when they’re still totally green and unripe.
The resulting production from our early harvest is very limited in quantity, as the olives are not filled with many fats yet; for the same reason, the resulting oil is highly rich in polyphenols, antioxidants, and aromas, and flavors.
One of the most outstanding qualities of Novello olive oil is its unmatched flavor. Novello olive oil has a rich, fruity, and slightly bitter taste that is not found in other olive oils. This unique flavor is a result of the olives being harvested at their peak ripeness and then immediately processed into oil. Novello olive oil is made from a blend of different olive varieties, including Leccino, Frantoio, and Moraiolo, which gives it its distinctive flavor profile.
Our delightful EVOO has intensely fresh, fruity aromas that predominate with green olives, fresh-cut grass, and herbs.
Novello olive oil is always fresh, as it is made from the first cold press of the olives, which is why it is also known as “new” oil. This means that it is always in season and should be consumed within a few months of its production to ensure maximum freshness and flavor. Novello olive oil is typically bottled in dark glass bottles to protect it from light and air, which can cause it to spoil and lose its flavor.
Vibrant, green, incredibly fresh-tasting, and right off the press. More than a mere condiment, it’s an authentic sensory experience.
High Smoke Point
Novello olive oil has a high smoke point, which makes it ideal for cooking at high temperatures. The smoke point of an oil refers to the temperature at which it begins to smoke and release harmful compounds. Novello olive oil has a smoke point of around 405°F (207°C), which is higher than most other cooking oils. This makes it perfect for sautéing, frying, and baking, without the risk of producing harmful compounds.
In conclusion, Novello olive oil is an exceptional oil that stands out for its unique flavor, nutritional value, high smoke point, versatility, and freshness. It is a must-have ingredient in any kitchen, whether you are a professional chef or a home cook. So, the next time you are in the market for a high-quality olive oil, consider Novello olive oil, and experience the amazing qualities for yourself.
FOOD AND COOKING: VERSATILITY
Novello olive oil is a versatile oil that can be used in a variety of dishes, both savory and sweet. Its fruity flavor makes it ideal for drizzling over salads, vegetables, and grilled meats. It is also a great oil to use for making marinades, dressings, and sauces. Novello olive oil can even be used in baking, adding a rich and unique flavor to cakes and pastries.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE NAME “NOVELLO” OLIVE OIL
First Green is our “novello” olive oil.
Novello is the Italian word for “novel,” although it is sometimes called “Olio Nuovo” or “Verdone” in Umbria. It’s the name given to oil produced from the earliest harvest. Traditionally, Novello oil represents a true celebration of the beginning of the olive harvesting season.
THE STORY OF THE FARMERS AND THEIR OLIVE OIL
All micro farmers own an olive tree field – called “Oliveto” in Italian – that they’ve often inherited and personally grow. They harvest the olives according to traditional centenarian methods. The oil comes in small quantities and is extremely limited in production. The growth and production methods don’t aim to force the plants to produce as much as possible.
They preserve ancient family traditions and create the very best olive oil possible, respecting the natural vegetative cycle of the plant for a well-balanced, sustainable production.
Our farmers like to say: “This oil is pure; there’s nothing more real and genuine you can get”.
OLIVE OIL VINTAGE
Every bottle of our Vintage olive oil is truly unique in its own right. With this in mind, every olive oil we produce is slightly different due to varying seasonal temperatures and weather conditions in each specific geographical area. As such, the flavors and perfumes may differ year over year.
