Additional Information on Masseria Li Veli Passamante 2013

Winery: Masseria Li Veli

Varietal: Negroamaro

Negroamaro grapes have been grown in the Puglia region of southern Italy for centuries, where they have long been admired for their fairly intense flavors and the fact that they produce beautiful deep and dark wines, full of complexity and rustic character. It is believed that they were brought by traders from Asia Minor sometime at the beginning of the last millennium, but they have found their home in the warm and sunny Salento peninsular on the Mediterranean coast. Here, the Negroamaro grapes are used in single variety bottles, where their strength and earthy bitterness takes center stage. They are also often used as a blending grape, as their powerful character and ability to add color and body to wines is a highly prized attribute often needed by vintners when looking to add something extra to their blend.

Region: Puglia

Italy's beautiful southern wine region of Puglia is a fascinating place for fans of Italian wines. Situated in the very 'heel' of the country, sticking down into the Mediterranean sea, one can hardly imagine a more perfect place for viticulture. Rich, fertile volcanic soils help the grapes take on real character and stunning flavours, and the blazing sunshine of the long summers allows them to reach exceptional levels of ripeness. The wines of Puglia are a great example of how certain Italian regions are throwing off the poor reputations of yesteryear, and using their traditional techniques and methods to create characterful wines, packed full of unique flavours. Puglian wines are renowned for their large, powerful and boisterous characters, and their excellent structure which supports their strong and unique fruit flavours.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
