NV Calcarius BiancoPuglia - Puglia, Italy (1Ltr)
|Availability:||In stock (58)|
Calcarius is an avant-garde natural wine project from Valentina Passalacqua that focuses on the Kimmeridgian limestone soils of her childhood town, Arpicena, at the feet of the Gargano mountains in Puglia. Made from 100% Bombino Bianco, the grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and fermented traditionally in stainless steel tanks, in contact with the skins for about 5 days with indigenous yeast. This white is crisp, light-bodied and refreshing with subtle floral aromas, stone fruit and kefir lime flavors with a dash of bitters on the finish. Pairs wonderfully with classic Pugliese cuisine like Orecchiette with broccoli rabe and garlic or Baccala al la Salentina, their special version of salted cod.
