Nonna's Pantry presents Novello Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Sicily.

Our newest extra virgin oil, this one can do it all, from drizzling on fine steaks, and making salad dressings.

The Barbera brand was created in the early 1980's and has become one of the most popular "Gourmet Olive Oils" available. This "new" or "novello" olive oil is the perfect blend of three varieties of Sicilian Olives: the delicate Biancolilla 40%, the tasty Nocellara 20% and the robust Cerasuola 40%. These varieties create a beautifully-fragrant and extremely pleasant-tasting oil. This phenomenal oil has a fruity flavor that is reminiscent of fresh olives. Used for all kinds of rustic dishes, bruschetta, bean soups and Sicilian foods.
