LiVeli Passamante 2009 Salento

The big vineyard of Negroamaro located next to Masseria Li Veli, surrounded by aperimeter of big pine trees, is just beside a forest called “Passamante”. The reason for this name is that in the past, people who wanted to “have a tumble in the hay” with their lover, especially if not allowed, used to pass by this grove. As a consequence, this started to be considered The Forest of Lovers and took on this name from the words “Pass” (to pass) and  “Amante” (lover)… The peculiar scent of the vegetation in this maquis is perfectly in harmony with the organoleptic properties of the wine.

Food:  fine match for spicy pasta dishes, lamb, chops, pizza or grilled hamburgers
