Villa Massa Limoncello Liqueur with 2 Flute Glasses
Villa Massa Limoncello is made from lemons that are organically grown, in Sorrento, Italy, on shaded hillside terraces, in volcanic soil, overlooking the Gulf of Naples.
Sorrento limoncello is one of the typical local products from the Campania’s food and drink tradition, and has been produced and savoured for over a hundred years in that narrow stretch of land nestled amongst nature and the cobalt blue sea.
The earliest reports of limoncello come from Capri, where the brand “limoncello” was registered for the first time in 1900. According to Amalfi traditions, the origins of limoncello can be traced back to the introduction of lemon farming to the coastline from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century, when Sorrento great families would ensure that illustrious and welcome guests would never be deprived of a taste of limoncello: at that time, the liqueur was produced at home using the best citrus fruits from the families’ own lemon groves, and was a symbol of authentic and merry hospitality. The Massa family was one of the families who preserved the tradition of homemade limoncello.
