Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Wine
Wine making: Manual harvested grapes are destemmed and fermented using native yeasts. Matured in stainless steel tanks. Unfined and unfiltered with a very small amount of sulphur added.
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.
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.
