Cloudy lime-peel appearance. Fresh citrus zest aromas have a distinctly lemony quality. Syrupy and sweet, with a strong zest character that none of the tart lemon flavors in the bouquet would lead you to expect. This will add a zesty tang to any cocktail. The Sperone family's limoncello recipe is known to Europeans and Americans alike as Caravella Limoncello, the number one-selling limoncello in the United States. Named after a restaurant in Amalfi, Caravella Limoncello's production is overseen by both Paolo Sperone and his brother Antonio, who ensure just the right combination of green (unripe) and yellow lemons are used to give Caravella its distinctive taste and aroma. Creating successful spirits recipes runs in the family. In the 20s, Paolo's paternal grandfather, Giacomo, created a special recipe of herbs to enhance the flavor of the vermouth he bottled to sell at the family's small group of spirits stores in Turin. The distilling business grew until World War II, when bombs destroyed the distillery. The family relocated to Milan where they rebuilt the business to become the third largest vermouth producer in Italy. In the 80s, they began bottling Caravella Limoncello and sharing the century-old family recipe with people everywhere. Today the Sperone family business includes 50 employees and a small winery that produces Piedmont and sparkling wines. The family business motto, created by founder Giacomo Sperone, is "In business, be fair and follow quality. In the long run, you will win."
