Li Marini district
If you sit on the terrace of this ancient Masseria, you can see the sea. In fact this farm is about 10 km far from the Ionian sea. Yet these few kilometers strongly characterize this inland district, with a very light rainfall. This pale brown and impermeable clay soil suits best fragrant grapes, whose balance must be oriented towards notes of aromas and freshness. That’s why the production of Li Marini district is focused on a6mani Bianco Salento IGP. These wines are peculiarized by balance and pleasantness, a typical taste that captivates, appeals and refreshes the senses.
