Nocellar is one of the most prominent Sicilian olive cultivars, much appreciated for its charateristics and versatility. It is used for the production of both extra-virgin oil and table olives. They have a distinct bright green colour due to being harvested early and have a mild, buttery flavour and meaty in texture. The oil has a medium fruity intensity and is characterised by green tomato notes as well as secondary notes, such as cut grass and artichoke. The oil is bitter and slightly spicy, and at the same time it is rich in phenolic compounds, antioxidants and fatty acids. Also known as Castelvetrano olives, these go well in a Martini or with extra virgin olive oil.
