This is one of the most apricot-intense experiences you can have next to actually eating an apricot. Spooning up a bite of this gelato is like biting into a fuzzy-skinned, peak-ripe apricot. Made with fresh apricots and some lemon juice, it tastes of pure fruit. All that juicy nectar with a faint tartness and a golden-orangey sweetness, but not too sweet.
It'd be tough to go wrong with any gelato flavor at Osteria Morini, but the apricot has been a favorite lately. It should be on the menu for a little while, though a peach sorbet might come along and replace it.
