Fabrizia, a small moun- tain town in Calabria, Italy -- the name "Fabrizia" is de- rived from the word "faber" which translates to mean "to work with your hands" -- the perfect name to baptize the limoncello that is hand crafted and inspired in its hometown origin of Calabria, Italy! Phil and Nick Mastroianni, brothers born and raised in Massachusetts, are the driv- ing duo behind"Fabrizia that is becoming the limoncello of choice in New England. It is no wonder! Fabrizia in- sists on crafting by all natu- ral ingredients, with lemons that are individually peeled by hand, no artificial color- ing.

How it all started -- a brief glimpse "It all began during a trip to their family's origin, Calabria, Italy," says Phil. "We were visiting my cousin Angelina when she put a bottle of her limoncello on the table made with lem- ons from her own property. It was delicious! Inspired by her to create my own limoncello, I started to make some limoncello for fun, as a hobby and on the week- ends." How the seed was planted (Phil tells the story) "It was a Friday night after a long week of work. Upon re- turning home to Newton, Massachusetts, I found my Uncle Joe sitting in the kitchen visiting my parents. Knowing that he was a fan of limoncello I took some out and poured him a glass. Af- ter taking a sip he looked up and said 'You know, this is what you should be doing. This is the best limoncello I've ever had.'" Leap of faith -- Phil Mastroianni heeded the words of wisdom of his Uncle Joe and began to moonlight in the business of making limoncello. He ultimately quit his job as an accountant, and now he, along with his brother Nick Mastroianni, (who handles the production of 11 =ow tll Jt~IUII 781 286 CASH Per Ounce. 24K " " ~1~[~3 We Buy Diamonds, Gold and Silver Jewelry "~jL We Buy Gold and Silver Coins j~ J~ ~ 345 Broadway, Revere Serving the Community for 33 Years Hours lO.5:3O pm every day.
