Fratelli Colletti 2017 Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2017 Nocellara del Belice from Castelvetrano aka Castelvetrano Olives
Nocellara del Belice cured only in brine
These olives are Nocellara del Belice.
In the states they are also known as Castelvetrano olives.
Grown in the Valle del Belice in Sicily near the town of Castelvetrano, they are not the olives we press our oil from but their size and flavor make a wonderful table olive.
Unlike most Castelvetrano olives you find in the states, they have NOT been cured in lye (caustic soda), but are cured in a simple brine. Notice the slit cut into each olive. This allows the brine to penetrate the olive and shortens the curing process to 4-5 weeks. Of course they are non-pitted.
The olives are vacuum packed in brine in 250 gram bags. Two bags together make 1.1 pounds. Shipping is included. Buy 2.2 lbs (4 bags) or more for the best value.
They are this year's harvest - 2017 - are organically produced, have a natural green color and a firm, meaty texture.
1.1 lbs - 2 x 250g bags sealed in brine
