In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, crystal clear.

Aromatics

The nose is wonderfully fresh and vibrant with the scents of lemon zest and sweet lemon juice being redolent of Limoncello and lemon drop candies.

Flavor

The palate confirms the nose delivering a rich, creamy core with bright lemon pulp and zest sharing an equal stage with a creamy custard.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with incredible viscosity coating every corner of your mouth while maintaining perfect balance.

Cool Factor

A

For anyone who has had the pleasure of walking the streets of Rome and happening upon a little gelato shop just when the urge something sweet hits will have the same reaction as I did to these Liqueurs.

Value Grade

A

At just over $20 a bottle it's worth every penny and then some as there is nothing else like this.

Analysis

Like all of these great gelato inspired Liqueurs it's made with real dairy cream from Italian dairies in the Trentino-Alto Adige. A hit in Rome for decades these great Liqueurs made it to America in 2015. All of the tasty Francescano Natura Assisi is produced in Trieste, Italy and offered at Enoteca Guerrini locations throughout Rome. The lemon is much like the Limoncello that most of us love. It's fresh with natural lemon flavors and cream to add body and length.

How to Enjoy

Sip it chilled neat or over ice. It's also great tossed with fresh-cut fruit.
