Calcarius Frecciabomb Pet Nat, Valentina Passalacqua 2019
Bombino Bianco. Puglia, Italy.
Funky, fizzy and hazy., A naturally sparkling orange wine made of the indigenously white-berried grape called Bombino Bianco given several days of skin contact. The wine is finished in the bottle, a single fermentation for a true methode ancestrale wine. No filtering or fining, all biodunamically farmed grapes, and no sulfur is added.
Super light, refreshing, serve chilled for the perfect apertivo wine
Valentina cultivates 80 hectares of vineyards from traditional varieties on the Gargano to the north of Puglia and on a calcareous white stone land of Kimmeridgiana origin that uniquely characterizes the sharp and salty expression of my wines. Thanks to the close relationship with her land, Valentina Passalacqua has adopted an organic agronomic approach from the beginning and, following a long period of observation and study, has developed a deep knowledge of the terroir. After several years of production, Valentina felt the need to isolate some of the plots in their vineyards and the Calcarius project was born: terroir driven, mineral wines, tense and uncompromising.
