Based in Apricena, Gargano National Park where limeston is the distinctive element of the terroir. After years of studying the land Valnetina Passalacqua decided she should isolate the plots of their vineyards characterised exclusively by Kimnmeridgian Calcareous soils. From this Calcarius was born. Terroir driven, mineral wines. Totally unique indigenouse varieties. Mediterranean climate.
Label info - Ca for Calcium with atomic number 20 and atomic weight 40.08.
Hellen Rosso, Calcarius - Still red made with Nero di Troia. Full of energy with pronounced red fruits and blackberries. A favourite of ours with a super long finish and a freshness that keeps on giving.
Freccianera Pet Nat Rosato, Calcarius - Pet Nat made also from the Nero di Troia grape. Packed full of exotic fruits like grape fruit and lychee. Super refreshing!
Nu Litr Orange Puglia, Calcarius - Skin contact orange. Very fresh and fragrant orange wine. Packed with herbal and spice notes with orange and a salinity on the palate. Deep orange in colour, almost blood orange like. Delicious!
Hellen Bianco, Calcarius - White made with Falanghina grapes. Packed with personality and flavours of apples and peaches. The depth of the wine is shown in the salinity with chalk texture and minerality throughout from the Kimmeridgian soils.
