Olio Nuovo - This years Olive Oil

The labour intensive Olive harvest

Olive harvesting Italian style

Ripe and immature Olives together

In Tuscany the Olive are usually harvested in the first two weeks of November, and thus the freshly pressed Olive oil is available - Olio Nuovo. The olives are pressed before they have reached the full maturation giving the Oil a dark greenish colour and slight grassy flavour.
