Tuscany, Italy– This is a high quality Chianti at an everyday price. This small, family-owned producer packs plenty of flavor in this one – dried cherry, plum and a hint of vanilla. A medium-bodied, well-structured wine with superb balance and subtle woodsy notes in the bouquet.
One of today’s trendiest spirits, limoncello is a lemony liqueur with roots in Italy’s Amalfi coast. There, on the gorgeous hillsides that rise sharply from the sea, and on the nearby island of Capri, lemon groves produce the fragrant and sweet Ovale di Sorrento lemon. For generations, local residents have crafted their own limoncello using these oversized, juicy lemons.
One of our favorite producers of Chianti, Bellini, searched throughout Italy to find the best recipe to make its own limoncello. The result is a liqueur that is sweet and lemony, vibrant and refreshing. Store your Bellini Limoncello in the freezer and serve it ice cold as an after-dinner treat.
