Meletti Limoncello, Marche, Italy $47 / 700ml
With its deep, bright lemon-peel yellow hue and explosive lemon aroma and flavour, this is a benchmark limoncello. Very sweet and thickly textured when served ice-cold, it has almost pulpy density and fantastic length, augmented by warming alcohol and peely bitterness. Store in freezer and serve as a digestif. 30 per cent alcohol.
Food: no. Serve by itself after the meal
