Progetto Calcarius, Puglia Rosso 1L
Biodynamic farming, the use of organic grapes, minimum intervention wine making and the resulting wine is unfined and unfiltered, with a small amount of sulfur added at bottling.
ROZ is an amazing blend of Aleatico and Nero di Troia, full-on aromatic and thrist quenching Rosato.
Aromatic on the nose – elderflower, blackcurrant leaves and fruit, zesty and bright on the palate, raciness on the finish.
Light red or rosé? Hard to call, but it is definitely worth a try.
The numbers on the labels are the atomic number (20) and atomic weight (40.08) of the chemical element of calcium (Ca).”
Calcarius are based in Apricena, in the northern region of Gargano, Puglia (just south of Abruzzo). Valentina Passalacqua and Danilo Marcucci oversee a farm comprising 80 hectares of vines, fruit and vegetables.
This project bears the fruits of patient observation, attention to terroir, and a commitment to indigenous varietals. The vineyards are characterised by kimmeridgian calcareous soils (thus Calcarius) and are true wines of terroir – mineral, tense, and uncompromising. Valentina has been the leading exponent of biodynamics in Puglia since 2000.
