PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Masseria Li Veli is owned by the Falvo family, former proprietors of the Avignonesi winery in Tuscany. The name of their winery is an homage to Puglia's agricultural history; "masserias" were buildings that dotted the landscape and were constructed to provide shelter for the region's farm workers. Masseria Li Veli was located near the center of the Salento Peninsula in southern Puglia, on the southern slopes of the Murgia plateau. Like many of the masserias in Puglia, it had fallen into a state of disrepair. The Falvos purchased Masseria Li Veli along with 128 acres of land with the goal of restoring the property and establishing a winery that honors the native varietals, terroir, and winemaking traditions of Puglia.

Masseria Li Veli's "Askos" line showcases little-known native varietals. The Falvos, with the help of consulting winemaker extraordinaire Riccardo Cotarella have successfully resurrected the Verdeca grape, which is the star of today's feature and is only cultivated in small quantities in Puglia. The grapes are sourced from 20-year-old vines planted in vineyards about 1300 feet above sea level in clay/sediment soils. The wine is fermented and aged for about 3 months in stainless steel. It is medium-to-full-bodied, beautifully-textured, and citrussy, with aromas of lemon peel, spices, and herbs. The palate is layered and refreshing, with dominant flavors of lemon drop layered with accents of wet stone, white pepper, and savory herbs.
