The soil of
Masseria Li Veli is karstic, the colour reddish and sandy, permeable, rich in
water from the large underground water strata present in the area which build
up during the winter in the deeper layers. These conditions allow the vine
roots to access water and get through the driest summers without stress. The
soil, mainly calcareous and clayey with gravel and tuff, creates the ideal
conditions for the cultivation of vines producing strong, generous and warm
wines with broad and persistent perfumes.
