Adopt an olive tree, give an olive tree
- 14 November 2022
Have you ever tasted the rich taste of a new oil? Taken from the first olives of the harvest, new oil has a lot to say to the most demanding and sensitive palates and can offer a spectrum of very pleasant and unique flavors.
When new oil is mentioned, the mind immediately associates it with new wine. However, the two denominations are not superimposable. The new oil is the oil obtained from the pressing of the first olives harvested. The extraction procedure is the same as for extra virgin olive oil, but it is neither filtered nor decanted.
It is a freshly produced oil (new oil) which, not being decanted, has a “dense” appearance, one could say turbid, due to the substances that remain in suspension.
Intense in color, this new oil has a pungent flavor and a high phenolic concentration. If consumed preferably raw, it provides more antioxidants.
The tasting of the new oil is a moment of celebration, it is the occasion in which the first production of the harvest is enjoyed in a special way.
With an intense and slightly spicy flavor, this oil has a bitter aftertaste. Perfect for seasoning a bruschetta, it can also be used to season raw or boiled vegetables, soups and soups. In general, it is better to associate it with delicate flavors and add it raw.
A freshly squeezed oil, as well as a good extra virgin olive oil produced according to good practices, is a source of oleic acid. Important for preventing thrombosis, draining bile, it also has an anti-inflammatory action.
The Tuscan oil Campo di Torri, organic extra virgin, thanks to the high quality of the crops and the extraction techniques, allows you to enjoy these and other properties.
To taste our oil you can buy it in different formats at La Bottega ( Byward Market, Ottawa), Chez Nagib ( rue de Celestens, Paris ) or Niconoce ( via Col di Lana, Milano) or you can decide to adopt an olive tree and enjoy your share of oil.
