    • "Orion" Primitivo del Salento IGT 2018

      “Orion” Primitivo del Salento IGT 2018

      Orion is a very special primitivo, it is always fresh and of a remarkable endurance. Dense ruby red with violet edge, intense nose of aromas of ripe and fleshy red cherries, followed by spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. In the mouth powerful, smooth and very long. Its clearly defined acid reader sets it apart freshly and pleasantly from the otherwise far too often offered sweet, jamy primitivo monotony. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Garrisa” Susumaniello del Salento IGT 2018

      Ruby red with violet shimmer. In the nose a clear aroma of red berries, including raspberry, sour cherry and black currant. Suggestions of liquorice, rhubarb and young leather. On the palate it is soft, opulent and has a good tannin structure, in the finish it convinces like all red wines of Li Veli with a well integrated acidity and for the whole region very surprising freshness.

      "Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas are lifted by orange and potpourri spices. Rounded in feel, the palate pops in bright, bouncy red-fruit flavors, with spicy tannins riding under-neath. Accents of violet and graphite arise on the midpalate and extend through the finish." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakers
    Masseria Li Veli
    Puglia
    Masseria Li Veli

    A splendid building stands there between Brindisi and Lecce on the peninsula Salento in Apulia, between Adriatic Sea and Ionian Sea. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Marchese Antonio de Viti de Marco, an internationally renowned economist, university professor and senator from Lecce, built a top vineyard from Li Veli on medieval foundations, which later became a model for the whole of southern Italy.

    And as is so often the case, it was the immigrants who were to take the decisive next step. And they're not strangers. In 1999 the Alberto Falvo family, the former owners of Avignonesi from Montepulciano in Tuscany, bought the vineyard.

    With a lot of effort and attention to detail, the historic premises, including the wine cellar with its elaborate star vault, were renovated and brought up to the state of the art.

    Almost more effort was put into the gentle modernisation of the old vineyards. These 33 hectares are mainly planted with old autochthonous grape varieties such as Negroamaro, Primitivo, Susumaniello, Fiano and Verdeca, and this in the classic old Albarello education, i.e. quasi small trees, of which more than 5,000 are planted per hectare and which can hardly be cultivated mechanically.

    It took a while. Today, however, Li Veli is one of the best producers in Apulia and demonstrates that Negroamaro or Primitivo do not have to be rustic, but with due care can also produce elegant and drinkable wines. This was worth a listing in the top hundred wineries of Italy for the Wine Spectator.

    In addition to the well-known red wines, the wonderful white wines, which one would not expect here, are particularly worth mentioning. Like the Fiano and the Askos, an autochthonous white wine variety that probably landed here with the Greeks and is called Verdeca here.

    Numerous national and international awards show that traditional cultivation and modern, gentle cellar technology can go hand in hand if done correctly. We are extremely pleased that our pricing policy remains moderate. SUPERIORE.DE

    "They do exist - the exciting and non-marmeladige red wines from Apulia." Dr. Jens Priewe (weinkenner.de)
