Can anyone say if storage of this oil would be different from any other decent olive oil?
Similarly, what is shelf life if stored properly?

IMHO, yes! For what it's worth both are imported by Casa de Case. I've had the balsamic and I can't wait to try the olive oil. Here's a video that's got my mouth watering: http://www.casesf.com/CasaDeCase/Making%20Olive%20Oil.htm

Anyone try it yet?

It is at LEAST as good as the Balsamic (depending on how well you liked it), and probably better. I bought three. I'm considering creating another account, just to buy three more.

This is lovely tasty stuff.

I'm also happy (yes, not kidding) that it ships with smartpost. It's WINTER. Sometimes I travel. This means that it goes to my nice, warm, PO Box, and I don't have to worry about being home to protect it from the elements.

It takes months to find a customer, but only seconds to lose one.
The good news is that we should run out of them in no time.

Since the selling point for this oil seems to be its unusual and fleeting freshness, does it need to be consumed quickly to justify the price? I'm not so concerned with it "going bad", since I'll surely finish it in the next 6 months, but if it's going to turn into the equivalent of an $18/bottle of olive oil after a few weeks, I'll probably pass.

and FWIW, Casa di Case pairs this very olio with Thursday's balsamic offering. Methinks they're on to something...

I scored a bottle as kind of a labrat bonus. The olive oil was so good it completely outshined the bottle of Adequate Gift my friends and I were sampling.

This stuff is a bright neon green, and my wife described it best when she said "It's so olivey!"

Indeed, you get much more green-olive flavor than any oil I'd ever had. Resist the urge to crack pepper into it - no seasoning necessary. Every once in a while, a delightfully gnarly little hint of black pepper will stick in the back of your throat. Complicated flavors at work here.

We made short work of a loaf of French bread from the local Safeway, and I couldn't help think this oil deserved something fancier. I can't wait to try the bruschetta recipe on the bottle.

One thing to note is the shelf life is shorter than traditional olive oil. I just take that as a good excuse to eat more.

This bottle of olive oil has showstopper potential at your holiday party, and it's too good to give away as a gift. Seriously, I'm not sharing any more.

Personally I'm not too excited about the savings on this deal. It's $38 from them, and $34.99 from woot. Yes, there's an extra $8.83 savings in shipping making it a total of almost $12....but still.

I've never bought "high quality" oil before, and before I consider buying one as either a gift or for myself....what is this best used for and how does it compare to regular oils?
Is this worth it and why?

I've always found it interesting how consuming olive oil by dipping bread into it has become normal in the US. Italians never do this, at least not the ones in the regions I've been to.

That's not to say I don't enjoy consuming olive oil in this way myself.

Ah, well, this should go extremely well with my two bottles of Balsamic that will be coming soon. Their website shows that the shelf-life for a 5-liter tin is under a full year - any ideas on a 750mL bottle?

The expiration date on my labrat bottle says December 2011. I'm sure I'll finish mine in a fraction of that time - it's so good I'll go out of my way to use it.

I didn't see any special storage instructions.

I'm still really confused as to how long it will last in its "good" stage. Could we at least get a window, like how long it could last under ideal conditions...?

I have tasted this olive oil. It is STUNNING. This is not cooking oil. This is for eating, do not use this for sauting, etc. youare wasting it. Dip bread, make salad dressings, or pour on vegatables, pasta. Also makes great Pesto too.

In a cool, dark place it will keep well.

Yeah, like a lot of food, there's too many variables involved to be more exact (temperature, light, etc).

I might even use my can of wine-saver argon on this stuff.

Wine.woot thread on olio nuovo

Andy - have you tasted yet?



Yup.

--------------------------------------------------
EDIT: please note this review is for the cheaper "Fiordolio", not the "Siloro" offered. The Fiordolio they sell in the 5-liter tins is the one without the D.O.P. certification. Casa De Case says this about the differences between the two:

"Fiordolio is made from the same olives as Siloro, and with the same care and quality control, taken entirely from within the D.O.P. region. Because the oil does not carry the D.O.P. certification it is much more economical. In blind tasting, we have been hard pressed to tell the difference between the Siloro and Fiordolio..."

Back to our regularly scheduled program
--------------------------------------------------


My 5-liter tin arrived the day before thanksgiving, we had some at thanksgiving, and I've had some throughout the week. I had some friends over for dinner last night, and we had some more.

It's really good. It has a grassy, herbaceous quality that is still quite fruity. The closest thing I could think of is that it tastes like green banana peel smells when you crack open a banana, but much subtler. There's a little bit of spice on the end, kind of a white pepper sort of heat, very light and fleeting.

I made some rice with it (excellent) and we used it to roast some potatoes (good, but probably a waste, I think the heat might have killed it, probably best to use it as a garnish/finisher), but the favorite consumption method was just the oil with a little bit of sea salt in it, into which we dipped some fresh home-made sourdough bread (only my second attempt at baking sourdough bread, they're ugly, but quite tasty). We also had a nice domestic champagne, one that I'm still not sure why WD hasn't offered on the site. Very reasonably priced. Stelvin cap closure.

I'd highly recommend that you pick up either this bottle, or one of the tins from Casa de Case, if they're still available. It's pricey, but I don't know of anywhere else you can even get olio nuovo, so I think it's worth it. The only other place I've had it is in restaurants, so if you figure you're going to get a dozen meals or so out of this bottle, that's not bad.

OK, Shelf life: This oil will retain its big bloom and bright flavors for at least a month - after that it will still be great olive oil, just a lot more tame. On the other hand, the bright green color will turn to golden shortly after the bottle is opened and the oil is exposed to air - but the flavor will not change. We sell this oil to lots of folks in 5 liter tins which they use over a much longer time frame. There is a huge amount of sediment in the oil which settles out in the bottom of the tin (in the bottle, too, but much less, obviously). Here is a link to an explanation about the sediment and longevity of the oil. Longevity of the oil.

Not certified Kosher.
But 100% natural. Extra Virgin olive oil is the only food oil humans eat raw. The olives are harvested, crushed and pressed: basta! - that's all. Every other oil (corn, safflower, etd.) is processed in a refinery.

For you foodies, we supply a lot of great restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area and many are featuring the olio nuovo on their menus now. If you are in New York: today we are shipping a huge amount of this olio nuovo to Michael White's restaurants in NYC: Alto, Convivo & Marea, and 10 Downing is featuring it right now.

I do not have the palate that Andy has but I did enjoy it to no end. I could smell the grassy notes and I think I ate my weight in bread and oil (which is a lot). Andy had it right, some salt in the oil and bread I dipped my potatoes in it and it was awesome. I know it seems expensive for an olive oil but it is totally worth it.

Nope into the oil that dripped off my bread onto my plate. But I should have dipped into the community oil trough that would have been easier and I would have got more oil on them, thanks for the suggestion. Now I am hungry for oil trough and bread...stupid kids who "need" an "education" keeping me from breaking into your house for more oil.

I hear you, but I skipped the balsamic this time since I have 4 full and a partial still from 2 previous offers. I'm one of the lucky 10 also and I just found out this morning I'm getting laid off again on the 30th. I guess I will have more time to polish off this bottle of olive oil while it is still at its peak at least. If it is as good as the comments say, I'm sure I'd wish for more, but I can't swing it.
