Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Wine
Wine making: Manual harvested grapes are destemmed and fermented using native yeasts. Maceration on the skins for 5 days in open vats with manual cap breaking. Matured in stainless steel vats. Unfined, unfiltered with a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
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!
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.
