Buy This: 3 gift ideas for the foodie on your list

Andrew and Christina Marcelli, siblings and co-owners of Marcelli Formaggi, returned from Italy in October with a limited
number of organic, first press
olio fresco novello (fresh olive oil) to offer their customers, pressed just this fall. This is their third year partnering with a farm in Abruzzo,
a region that borders the Adriatic Sea. They travel to Abruzzo to help with the harvest, a process in which the olives go
from tree to bottle in seven days. We were lucky enough to get our hands on a bottle. The oil is bright green, slightly cloudy,
and intensely “green” in flavor with a bit of peppery finish. It’s highly unusual to get hold of such fresh olive oil so far
from where it’s produced. By the time imported olive oil arrives here in the States, it may have been shipped to many places
and who knows how it was stored. This is olive oil just about as fresh as it’s possible to get. When you get your bottle,
be sure to store it in a dark place, and don’t hoard it. Start drizzling and dipping immediately.

$45 per 500-milliter bottle. Available from
