Limoncello is the flagship of the company, obtained exclusively thanks to the use of fruits certified by the Consorzio di Tutela del Limone di Sorrento IGP.
The liqueur, emblem of the Sorrento gastronomic tradition, comes from the infusion in alcohol of the peels of "Sorrento IGP lemons" rich in essential oils. The lemon just picked from the tree releases all its scents, giving the finished product that acrid smell, sour, sweet and intense at the same time, which makes it unique and unmistakable.
The "Limone di Sorrento IGP" liqueur is distinguished by the use of a very high quantity of "Limone di Sorrento IGP" (approximately 350gr/lt) belonging to the Ovale di Sorrento cultivar variety, grown exclusively in the Sorrento Peninsula, in compliance with the strict technical specifications subject to MIPAF control.
The high alcohol content, equal to 30 degrees, makes this liqueur an excellent digestive, perfect to be enjoyed cold at the end of the meal.
