La Castellina Novello Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of those gifts that delights and impresses. Produced in the medieval village of Castellina in Chianti, just outside Siena in Tuscany, this is a clean, clear-tasting olive oil that has a total production of only 6,000 bottles and only a portion of that is exported to the US where the only retailer is Olde Hudson.
Peppery Meriolo and richly-flavored Leccino olives are manually harvested and cold-pressed within 24 hours and then gradually bottled by hand in beautiful cork-sealed glass bottles in order to preserve the olives' true essence. Fruity and delicate to start, with a slightly spicy finish, this unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil is available in limited quantities.
This year we are making a unique gift presentation available. La Castllina will be coddled in a birch bark cylinder with leather closing with a beautiful presentation card describing its outstanding qualities.
