*CRUSH DATE: October 2021
The Sicilian Nocellara is complex with unique savory and sweet fruit notes and a pleasant creamy mouth feel. A lingering pepperiness boils in the back of the throat followed by elated astringency signifying the healthy Oleocanthal content present in fresh oil, although this production contains little to no bitterness making it a superbly balanced oil. True to its variety characteristics from last year but kicked up in pungency, it displays savory and sweet fruit notes of green apple/apple peel, sweet berry, stone fruit, and slight confectionary flavors with delayed peppery sensations and a lingering spicy mouth feel.
