Liveli pezzomorgana

Salice Salentino, "Pezzo Morgana" 2008

Li Veli

Deep ruby red in color with violet hues and a full and persistent fragrance; notes of prune and cherry jam, sensations of caramel and pepper that reinforce a very interesting nose indicating a strong body; on the palate it is wide and warm, with flavors of pulpy fruit; it has a very long finish with scents of raisins and almonds.

Reviews

  • "90 points. From 12-year-old blush vines of negroamaro planted in clay and limestone, this wine is aged in French barriques for a year before bottling, with only one-third new oak. Its scents of fresh cherries and chestnut lead into an open, airy wine, its gentle finish lasting on red fruit flavors and refined bitterness in the tannins. For braised pork over chicory.” (Wine & Spirits)
  • "88 points. A cut, rustic red that displays a well-balanced mix of damson plum, black cherry, licorice, spice and spring herb notes that linger through the minerally finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
