JUST PRESSED! Enjoy O&CO.'s first olive oil of the 2017 harvest from Sicily, Italy -  a truly remarkable Affiorato, from the OLIS domain. One of the stars of the year!

We are proud to offer this wonderfully fresh extra virgin olive oil that is so smooth on the palate while revealing notes of freshly cut grass, fresh herbs, tomato leaf and a touch of almond….smooth, soft and sweet. A gem of elegance.

Pressed from 100% Nocellara de Belice olives and produced by Sicily’s Massimiliano Geraci, whose family has been producing Extra Virgin olive oil since the late 19th century.  The Nocellara del Belice – an indigenous and precious olive cultivar – can be considered as a symbol of the Sicilian tradition.

This fresh vegetal flavor profile makes it a great match for vegetables, soups, tomatoes, goat cheese, roasted meats and poultry, mashed potatoes, and of course, for bread dipping.  Packaged in a beautiful olive green tin, the 2017 Affiorato is a rare monovarietal oil, which epitomizes the freshness and quality for which O&CO. is known.
