We have just a few liters of our 2014 Harvest left.
Everything you have read about the Italian olive harvest last year is true.
It was a terrible year for most growers.
Because we hand select every olive that goes into our oil we have still managed to produce an exceptional oil this year.
Look no further, we've got the good stuff.
The 2014 Harvest Fratelli Colletti is rich with a full mouth feel, herbaceous and a bit peppery at the finish.
We are now in Sicily for the 2015 harvest and cannot currently take orders.
Check back in November.
New oil coming mid December.
