Valentina Passalacqua grows indigenous grape varieties on the uncompromising limestone soils of the Gargano national park in Puglia, in the heal of Italy. ⁣After several years working the vineyards, alentina decided to isolate some of the plots which have exclusively Kimmeridgian calcareous soils and give very particular and delicious characteristics to the wines. We have three of the resulting Project Calcarius wines, a red, white and orange, in litre bottles and labelled with 20, the atomic number of calcium (Ca) and its atomic weight, 40.08. But you knew that. As with very many of our wines, the viticulture is organic and the winemaking wisely and considered non-interventionist. These wines all share a terroir driven, deliciously nervy, super-drinkable style. Just as well they are in litre bottles. This wine is made from Falanghina grape with a period of skin contact giving a deep colour, flavours of ripe apricot and white peach, and a super dry finish that somehow manages to be also rich. Bonkers brilliant.
