Li Veli Primonero Salento Negroamaro IGT

2015

In a Nutshell

Rich and ripe Negroamaro blend.

Tasting Notes

Deep red in colour with a hint of purple youth. Juicy and ripe on the nose with ripe plum and sweet red cherry mingling with dried figs, prunes and violets with hints of almond and lavender. The palate is medium weight with soft, sweet red fruits and supple tannins.

Production Notes

The fruit is from 12 year old vines, bush trained as is common in the area. Hand picking is carried out end August/beginning September for Primitivo and end September for Negroamaro. Once in the cellar, grapes are manually selected before de-stemming and pressage. Fermentation is done under controlled temperature between 27° and 31° C, to preserve as much as possible the original aromatic qualities of the fruit. After the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine is transferred into French oak barriques, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After the 4 months ageing in barriques the wine is bottled.
