Li Veli Askos Verdeca 2013

Li Veli Askos Verdeca 750ML 2013   
Sku: 35676

Light and minerally with bright brisk acidity, check this out for something different and unusual from Italy. 100% Verdeca, this would be 100% great with Tallegio or Fettucine Carbonara.

Rating
The Askos Verdeca is a gorgeous wine layered with fruit. It shows gorgeous intensity all the way through to the mineral-laced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. This is a promising set of wines from Li Veli. It will be interesting to see what the Falvo family comes up with now that they have fully exited Avignonesi and are free to focus on their Puglia property. This year I tasted two new sweet wines that are clearly modeled on the legendary wines the family made at Avignonesi, but with much shorter aging. (Wine Advocate)

Other text
Li Veli is situated in the Puglia region of Italy, the largest wine-producing region in the country. In 1999 the Falvo family, former owners of Avignonesi in Tuscany, purchased the 128 acre property in Salice Salentino, in the heart of the Salento region. The vineyard portion of the estate currently measures 86 acres. Li Veli highlights the region's principal native varietals, Verdeca for white wine, and Negroamaro and Primitivo, which are made into powerful, inky dark red wines of great character and elegance. Through proper vineyard management and vinification, Li Veli has established a new quality benchmark for wines from Puglia. In 2005 all the grapes from Li Veli's vineyards were certified organic.
