Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2011 Verdeca is flat-out beautiful. Layers of floral infused yellow stone fruits, flowers, mint and licorice are all woven together in this striking, highly expressive white. This is a dazzling effort. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2014. ” (Feb 2013)
From an ancient property in Puglia that was brought back to life a few years ago. A unique white wine that I find so much better than most. Worth drinking, MADE FROM THE OBSCURE ROLLE GRAPE.
|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.
