Excellent service

I ordered limoncello as a gift but had a query about delivery. My query was answered promptly and the order processed quickly. The recipient of the limoncello is very pleased with it. Thank you Agrumia


The wine notes describing this wine are 100% accurate. Having the opportunity to purchase quality wine from the Campania region within the UK with outstanding customer service and delivery is an opportunity not to be missed.

Quick order and lovely drink!

I've been searching for a cream limoncello since last May after falling in love with it on a holiday to Italy. The delivery was so quick and it's gorgeous. Thank you!

Tastes just like a melted chocolate orange - ideal for chocolate orange martinis!

Pure molten liquorice - wonderful!
