On the east side of Masseria Li Marini theres an area known as Monte la Conca. It is located in the central part of the D.O.C. area Primitivo di Manduria. From the point of view of climatic and soil conditions, Masseria Monte la Conca has long insolation hours during the day and generally high temperatures with almost no rainfall during the warmer months. Along with this, a thin layer of dry red soil is an ideal habitat for red grapes with big structure and intense colour, such as Malvasia Nera del Salento, Aglianico and Negroamaro. From this fruit we produce a6mani Rosso Salento IGP, a6mani Negroamaro Salento IGP, a6mani Salice Salentino DOP, Lifili Rosso Salento IGP, Lifili Negroamaro Salento IGP and Lifili Salice Salentino DOP. The yield of these vine plants is very low, as is the average rainfall. Thus we decided to produce blended wines in this district, so as to choose the vine-varieties that express better every single year. The results are full-bodied wines with a round and pleasant structure and a good ageing potential.
Deep ruby red with garnet shades, intense aromas of cherry and plum are underpinned by subtle Mediterranean herbs and spices. True to good Salice-Salentino this wine is full-bodied, full of ripe fruit, and with a long fresh finish.
