rossi d’asiago lemoncello

Alc. 32%

Bottle:

Some awful looking rectangle almost resembling a frosted monolith with tumors all over the bottle. Has to be Italian to look that over presented.

Nose:

Meyer and juicing lemons. Cough drops and boiled lemon sweets, followed by the lightest isopropryl and oddly, cotton balls.

Palate:

Lemons! Icing sugar, zest, cough syrup, hard drop candies and lemon jelly candies too. Ju jubes and just the slightest touch of spirit. This drink is quite thick and coats the palate all over. Smooth and pleasant.

Please note:

Limoncello is commonly a flavored distillate. The process is quite easy and simple to do at home. Lemon peels are soaked in high proof vodka or grain alcohol(highest proof possible) for over a month. The distillate is strained off and cut down to a drinkable proof by adding a syrup of boiled water and sugar. The concoction is strained again and then bottled. If you’re doing this at home, it is best to let it sit for a month before tasting it. It needs time to marry before its palatable.
