Star rating: 8/10
Read our full review of the best limoncello
Tosolini is named after its founder, Giuseppe ‘Bepi’ Tosolini, who revolutionised how the world views grappa, a type of brandy made from the odds and ends of winemaking.
The distillery’s grappa is now the base for an array of liqueurs, including limoncello.
The limoncello is made from Amalfi and Sicillian lemons, with both green (winter) and yellow (summer) peels used. The peels are infused with the grappa spirit, then distilled in the company’s alembic, which dates back to 1955.
The end result is a limoncello that’s sweet on the nose and sharp on the tongue – it’s packed with lemon juice and fresh Meditteranean citrus, with fresh orange notes lingering in the background. The mouthfeel is encompassing but short-lived, ensuring your glass is regularly topped up.
The perfect pour
Owing to the short and sharp mouthfeel, this limoncello is best enjoyed when stretched out with some prosecco. Pour prosecco and limoncello at a ratio of 3:1, and garnish with fresh basil.
