Primo Fiore Nocellara dell'Etna Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 500ml
Between October and November, Nocellara Etnea olives are harvested from the groves on the slopes of Mount Etna in the province of Catania in Sicily. Hand picked and processed within 12 hours, this monovarietal EVOO is opalescent green with golden reflections. Herbaceous and spicy with a good persistence, yet fruity with a light almond aftertaste. 100% Italian Product.

Frantoio Scalia comes from Mascalucia where olive groves climb up the side of the active volcano, Mount Etna on the east coast of Sicily. This fertile volcanic soil produces olives of exceptional flavor. In 1948 Antonino Scalia founded one of the first olive mills with screw pressing, allowing them to produce oil from their family groves and other small local olive producers. To this day, Scalia's olive mill technology remains at the forefront of production. Antonin's son, Carmelo, carries on the tradition at the family mill. He is also a European Community National Olive Oil Taster.

Scalia's mill is a high technology plant which uses cold extraction and working with the reduced presence of oxygen. Olives are rigorously selected and hand picked, then processed the same day as picking.
