Calcarius, Hellen Puglia Nero di Troia, 2018
Nero di Troia
Tasting Notes: Bright, juicy, sour red fruits, earthy undertones, light tannins, summer fire escape.
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. Located in a national park, and benefitting from calcerous limestone in the soil and salty air from the nearby Adriatic, Valentina lovingly stewards the land with organic and biodynamic practices, producing wines that are elegant and light on their feet.
