about masseria li veli
In 1999 the Falvo family bought a 128-acre property in Salento peninsula, also known as the “heel of Italy”, situated in the Southern-East part of Italy. Their purchase gave new life to a project of winery born in the XIX Century: the original structure of Masseria Li Veli had already been established as a cellar at the time by Marquis Antonio de Viti de Marco, an internationally known Italian economist
and university professor, Radical Party Deputy of the Reign of Italy, whose ambitious project was to transform the Masseria into a model cellar for the entire South of Italy. Today the beautifully restored Masseria covers an area of 33.000sqm, 3750 of which include offices, a reception area, vinification, storage and ageing cellars, and is surrounded by 33 Hectares under vine, mainly cultivated with native alberello trained vines, at a high density planting (5120 vines/ha). Li Veli highlights the Salento region's principal native varietals, including the white Verdeca and the reds Negroamaro, Primitivo, Susumaniello and Aleatico, which are made into powerful, inky-dark wines of great character and elegance. All wines are produced exclusively by cultivating these grapes in the most suitable conditions according to the traditional methods.
ABOUT CHEF STEVE SAMSON
Samson, born to a Bolognese mother and American father, was exposed to the pleasures of Italian food at a young age. Whether it was the experience he gained helping his mother in the kitchen at home or annual family trips to Italy that eventually propelled him toward a career in Italian cooking, one thing is certain: once Samson left his medical school path to become a chef, he never looked back.
Rossoblu tells the story of the two places chef Steve Samson considers home: Los Angeles and Bologna. This is an homage to Samson’s heritage, inspired by childhood memories of summers spent in Bologna and its surrounding region, Emilia Romagna. The menu features handmade pastas, market fresh produce, and an extensive in-house butchery and salumi program. The wine list focuses on unique Italian and Californian varietals, with a sharp focus on Emilia Romagna’s famed Lambrusco. A true family owned and operated restaurant, Rossoblu is managed by Steve's wife, Dina, and their management team whom they have worked with over the last 10+ years.
Located in downtown’s City Market South, the site of Los Angeles’s original wholesale farmer’s market, Rossoblu’s open kitchen, marbled serpentine bar, and starry-lit vaulted dining room create a convivial dining environment. The outdoor piazza allows al fresco diners to feel far removed from the nearby city bustle.
