Limoncello by Villa Massa
Made only from Ovale di Sorrento PGI lemons, with an authentic and family recipe, and with state-of-the-art production technology to respect all its aromas, this liqueur is a pillar of the Italian gastronomic tradition, widespread and appreciated worldwide as a Mediterranean masterpiece.
The Ovale di Sorrento PGI lemon is unique and only found on the Sorrento Peninsula. Bright yellow and with a thick rind with an intense fragrance, it gives a juice that is very acidic and rich in vitamin C. Its bark is rich and concentrated in essential oils.
Grown under the shelter of straw mats placed on a frame of chestnut stakes, the best lemons are selected and harvested by hand, without parasitic attacks or traces of pesticides. After being washed and dried, the lemons are mechanically peeled to obtain the fine peel, which is then soaked in alcohol to release all their aromas. The resulting infusion, of the lemon-yellow colour characteristic of limoncello, is then mixed with a syrup of water and sugar, without aromas or preservatives, to obtain this exquisite liqueur full of freshness and pep!
How to taste it?
The most common way to taste it is to enjoy it with family or friends, in an iced glass, after meals. Nothing better to end a meal between bon vivants!
To live the typically Italian experience of limoncello, try it dry and at a temperature of -7°C, in small iced shooter glasses, at the end of lunch or dinner. Its intense aroma will have a surprisingly refreshing effect, not to mention a little help to digestion with the infusion of lemon peels in alcohol!
