    Slightly grassy. Somewhat bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Not peppery at all. Silky mouth feel. Beautiful green-gold color. Cloudy sediment at the bottom (normal and should not be considered a defect). Great for dressings, finishing, and for use in marinades. Also a great option for coating veggies with before throwing in the oven to roast. I’ve had better olive oils (I prefer more peppery notes) but this is a very good olive oil and one I would buy again, for its versatility alone. Folks who like a more mildly flavored olive oil but still want the benefits of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil will be pleased with this option.

    I love this olive oil. Many olive oils have a slight ‘machine oil’ smell. But this oils has a great fragrance and taste. I use it mostly in salad dressings and for cooking.
    I like it so much I buy 12 bottles so I’ll have it year round.

    I love olive oil. I never knew about the differences in the quality and tastes of olive oil until we spent much time in Italy. It’s on the same level of developing a good palette for coffees, wine, oolong tea, etc. I always look forward to Trader Joe’s having this olive oil in stock since it is not offered all year long. Sorry, but I was very disappointed with the taste, fragrance, and quality of Novello this time (Jan. 2022). I has the qualities of inexpensive olive oils in Italy and it doesn’t at all compare to prior purchases last year and the year before in taste and fragrance. Very disappointed.


    tasty..VERY GOOD

    This olive oil is horrible. The acidity is very high and not smooth at all. When an olive oil makes you choke when drinking it out of the bottle as it goes through your throat it is an indication of high acidity and a low quality.

    poor product – when initially purchased I eagerly tasted and was immediately disappointed and didn’t like it. went into the back of my cabinet. ran across it again a year or so later and gave it one more chance/taste and still don’t like it: sharp/bitter not smooth at all!!!
