In that case, since we don't have a specific esc_css(), then I'd say that
the most appropriate thing to use would probably be esc_html(). That will
protect against malicious code such as </style> being used to close the
style block. It also escapes quotes, so the output can't change your
quoting and mess with later elements of the css.

Make sure that you only use it on the value itself though, not the entire
CSS block, because esc_html() escape quotes into & quot;.
