2018 Calcarius Orange Puglia (1L)



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. Straight Falanghina. Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. The grapes ferment traditionally in stainless steel tanks, in contact with the skins for about 5 days with indigenous yeast only. Batonnage is performed about 2 times per week and the wine is racked 4 times before bottling. The wine is unfined and unfiltered, with a small amount of sulfur added at bottling.
