Villa Massa Limoncello 750ML      
Sku: 16087

The traditional Limoncello of Sorrento is produced by Villa Massa using an old family recipe. It is precisely the respect for tradition and the scrupulous care of the raw materials used that make this company international leader in the production of Limoncello for over twenty years. The real Limoncello of Sorrento is, in fact, produced using lemons grown only in one of the towns of the Sorrentine Peninsula, and in the island of Capri. Limoncello (also known as Limoncino) is a sweet lemon liqueur born, according to tradition, at the end of the nineteenth century, as an alcoholic beverage made by expertly blending lemons, sugar and alcohol. The geographic origins of Limoncello, a typical enogastronomical product from the Campania region, were lost among different traditions. The first piece of historic information regarding Limoncello is relative to the island of Capri where, in 1900, the ”Limoncello” trademark was registered for the first time. However, there are documents of that period that say that the lemon liqueur was already present on the tables of the families of Sorrento, used as an aperitif or digestif. According to the tradition of Amalfi, the origins of Limoncello are, instead, traceable back to the same period in which the cultivation of lemons began. Despite the different versions, now limoncello is undoubtedly one of the most famous and popular products of the Campania region: excellent digestif if served cold, Limoncello is also pleasing at room temperature, perhaps mixed with tonic water or champagne. Frequently it is also used on ice cream and fruit salads. In Campania, where it is mainly produced, Limoncello is usually served at the end of lunch or dinner, almost like the social ritual of drinking coffee.

(Great Value)- Foggy silver/yellow appearance. Smells pleasantly of just sliced lemons, lemon peel, lemon curd, lemon blossoms. Taste profile offers keenly zesty, tart, engagingly lemony flavors that are fresh, tangy, beguiling. Ends as fresh and clean as it began.
