Masseria Li Veli 2016 Orion Primitivo
100% Primitivo | Alc: 14% – Smooth and Supple
Dense ruby red with a purplish rim, it is immediately intense on the nose with marked aromas of ripe and fleshy red fruits, notably cherries followed by spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; in the mouth it is full, powerful, smooth and very long, with a well defined acid streak which makes it fresh and pleasing.
The name Orion comes from the Greek and refers to the fortified road nearby the vineyards of Masseria Li Veli (called Limite dei Greci) which in past times used to be considered the border between the Longobards domains to the North and the Byzantium reign to the South-East. Orion is a Primitivo in purezza, fresh, pleasant, full and soft with a remarkable persistence.
