Limonata - Wegman’s: Cherry Hill, NJ

Limonata - Wegman’s: Cherry Hill, NJ
Limonata is a lemonade flavored Italian mineral water. Sanpellegrino makes several citrus flavors: orange, lemon, grapefruit, blood orange, and chinò. (I’ve never seen or heard of chinò, so I had to look it up on Wikipedia.) So far I have only had the orange and lemon flavors, but I’d like to try them all.
The glass bottle is small, textured, and slightly tinted. It has a unique teardrop shape, which fits really nicely in hand, and the bottom is textured like a lemon peel. I think the bottles are adorable, but the label design is quite sophisticated. The stickers have a complex, curvy, shape which is quite impressive from a design standpoint, and the label-design is very complex.

The caps for these bottles are not twist-offs, so you need a bottle opener. This may be a little inconvenient for some people, but I like it. (I rarely get to use my bottle opener.) Once open,this beverage smells like carbonated lemonade.
Limonata is pretty tart. The label says that each bottle contains 18% lemon juice, so if you like sour or tangy beverages, you’ll love this. (I do.) The lemony flavor is more like bottled lemon juice that is made from concentrate, than freshly squeezed lemons, but the flavor is very nice with the carbonated mineral water. If I had to liken this to anything, it’d be like the canned Country Time Lemonade, but with a lot less sugar. (It has that concentrated, not quite real lemon taste.)

Although it doesn’t taste like freshly squeezed lemon, I really love this drink. It’s tangy, bubbly, and refreshing. I think this is perfect for a spring/summer day. (I’m going to try and find the other citrus flavors to review.)
