NOCCELLARA HIGH QUALITY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The Noccellara del Belice are the most famous of Sicily's olives. Also known as Castelvetrano, this Sicilian table varietal olive is prized for its consistency in olive oil and production of delicate brine-cured table olives. It is an extended variety in Wester Sicily where it is used for dual purposes. Castelvetrano is a town on the western end of the island of Sicily in the province of Trapani. It is in a valley formed by the Belice River (the "Velle del Belice") which flows approximately 50 miles southwest. Our Gold Medal winner Noccellara is a labor of love, early harvest with high concentration of natural nutrients such Oleic Acid and Phenolic compounds!FLAVOR PROFILE:

Its flavor includes notes of artichoke, banana, and ripe fruit, and finishes with a very mild peppery sensation. PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
As a salad oil, this Noccellara will please even the most discriminating of palates. It is excellent for bread-dipping and will add a delightful flavor to your sauces.

when dipping bread, or blended with one of our Wine or Sherry vinegars
and herbs and spices for the kind of vinaigrette you might be served at the neighborhood Italian restaurant.
