Villa Massa was the first company to produce, market and sell Limoncello both within Italy and abroad. We have a long history built on family traditions that have been handed down for over a century: we began producing artisanal Sorrento Limoncello in 1890. Lemons as far as the eye can see, the distinctive landscape of “Pagliarelle” cultivation, the intense scent of citrus fruits, the devoted farmer patiently and attentively harvesting lemons one by one and, beyond your gaze, the sea. This is “Le Grottelle”, the historic Sorrento Peninsula lemon grove that produces the extraordinary Sorrento Oval PGI lemons used by Villa Massa to make its traditional Limoncello. It is here, where Villa Massa’s magical Sorrento Limoncello was born. Without these unique PGI lemons, and without respecting the old-style cultivation and harvesting techniques, we could not create our authentic Sorrento Limoncello.
Golden green in color. The bouquet shows interesting aromas of wilted herbs, pencil shavings and lemony polished furniture. The palate is silky, crisp, sweet and smooth with lemon blossom notes, juicy fruit gum, fisherman’s friend lozenge, and frosted butter cookie finish.
