2018 Calcarius Hellen Bianco



Notes from our favourite US importers, Jenny and Francois..:
Calcarius is an avant-garde natural wine project from Valentina Passalacqua, focused on the kimmeridgian limestone soils of her childhood town, Arpicena, at the feet of the Gargano mountains in Puglia. 100% Greco. Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. The grapes ferment traditionally in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeast only. Batonnage is performed about 2 times per month and the wine is racked 4 times before bottling. The wine is unfined and unfiltered, with a small amount of sulfur added at bottling.
