 Bombino Bianco. Puglia, Italy.

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.

100% Bombino, hand-harvested and destemmed, spontaneous ferment in stainless steel, no skin contact, no temperature control, batonnage  1-2 times per week. Cold stabilization in stainless steel naturally over winter. Unfined and unfiltered, with a small amount of sulfur added at bottling.
