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.

Producer
Li Veli is situated in Puglia, the heel of Italy's boot, which is also the largest wine-producing region in the country. In 1999 the Falvo family (former owners of Avignonesi in Tuscany) bought the 128 acre property in Salice Salentino, heart of the Salento region. The vineyard portion of the estate currently measures 35 hectares Li Veli highlights the region's principal native varietals, like Negroamaro and Primitivo, which are made into powerful, inky dark wines of great character and elegance. Through proper vineyard management and vinification Li Veli has established a new quality benchmark for wines from Puglia.
