We've chosen for our sorbet the "Femminello Siracusano", a lemon variety known for its aromatic qualities. The secret? Our lemons are simply lightly pressed so that the bitter white pith beneath the rind is not touched.
The "Femminello Siracusano" lemon, the variety allowed under the regulations of the Limone di Siracusa Igp Consortium, is excellent in quality and highly appreciated worldwide for its aromatic characteristics. Thanks, in fact, to its extremely high number of oil glands (tiny sacs on the peel of citrus fruits, which contain the essential oils and produce the aromas), the fine grain of its peel and a particularly thin pith, the lemon production of Siracusa is envied all over the world. The Femminello Siracusano lemon cultivar blossoms three times a year: the "Primofiore" takes place between October and May; the "Bianchetto", in the months of April, May and June, and the "Verdello", in July, August and September.
Yes, you read correctly. Just as you would do, we chose to make our sorbets and Sicilian granita with water from "Sparea®" Springs. This water is born in a unique niche in the Piedmontese Alps and is extremely light and pure - ideal for accompanying the fruit from the organic farm, Mura Mura®. We are a little crazy… but you can certainly taste the difference!
