Veli Primonero 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Masseria Li Veli is an imposing building on the southernmost slopes of the Murge hills in the Salento peninsula. The project is the result of a partnership between the Guercia Sammarco, Maci and Falvo families. Together they decided to give new life to an old dream of the Marquis Antonio De Viti De Marco, a famous Italian economist who at the beginning of the century had chosen this farm to transform it into a model winery for the whole of southern Italy. The existing stone structure has been transformed and enlarged, following a well-planned and functional design in keeping with the style and layout of the original building. Avignonesi, the Montepulciano-based producer renowned for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Vin Santo, bought the Li Veli estate in 1999. The first vintage was 2000, and the quality of the wine confirmed to Ettore Falvo, Avignonesi’s director of winemaking, the potential of the Salento peninsula for the production of top quality wines. This Primonero Salento Rosso shows a fantastically deep ruby red in colour with purple nuances. Fine and intense fresh fruit aromas with floral touches on the nose. Balanced on the palate with good levels of acidity and a ripe, juicy red and black fruit character. The tannins are soft and ripe, giving a lovely texture to this wine which finishes long.
