The first Olio Nuovo from Italy just landed in the USA and it’s Quinta Luna extra virgin olive oil!
2020 has been a phenomenal olive year for the Gaudenzi family. When they started the harvest, just a few weeks ago, the olives looked absolutely healthy and plump.
This pic of Gaudenzi Leccino olives was taken just before the harvest. Have you ever seen a more perfect olive? Leccino is the olive cultivar that gives Quinta Luna its aroma of raw almond.
This year’s Quinta Luna has an incredibly intense flavor, with rich herbaceous notes of artichokes and green tomato. Once again, it proves to be one of our boldest EVOOs, with a harmonious bitter and spicy finish.
