Li Veli is situated in the Puglia region of Italy, the largest wine producing region in the country. In 1999 the Falvo family, former owners of Avignonesi in Tuscany, purchased the 128 acre property in Salice Salentino, in the heart of the Salento region. The vineyard portion of the estate currently measures 86 acres. Li Veli highlights the region’s principal native varietals, Verdeca for white wine, and Negroamaro and Primitivo, which are made into powerful, inky dark red wines of great character and elegance. Through proper vineyard management and vinification, Li Veli has established a new quality benchmark for wines from Puglia. In 2005 all the grapes from Li Veli’s vineyards were certified organic.

Tasting notes
Pronounced aromas and flavors of pear, mango, pineapple and citrus with dusty mineral notes and pleasing acidity.

Technical notes
(90% Verdeca/10% Fiano Minutolo). The vineyard was planted 32 years ago on calcareous soil with sediment. Following harvest the grapes are transferred to large refrigeration rooms in the cellar to preserve the varietal’s aromas and flavors. The must is macerated on its skins at cool temperatures and fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures.
