Spontaneous fermentation with skin maceration for 7 days in open vats with manual breaking. Unfiltered and clarified wine with winter racking in steel containers. At sight, it is orange in color; floral notes and aromatic herbs mingle with notes of oriental spices, composing an elegant and refined aromatic bouquet reminiscent of spring freshness. The taste is fresh and sapid characterized by citrus flavors of mandarin and orange.

Orange Wines are wines produced from white grapes but vinified as if they were red, that is to say letting the must macerate for a very long time with the skins and yeasts, which settle on the bottom and slowly transfer substances of different nature to the wine.


Calcarius, or “limestone wines”. Exactly, because the soil of Gargano, the northern area of ​​Puglia, is deeply limestone, where winemaker Valentina Passalacqua, originally from Puglia, and Danilo Marucci launched the project bearing the same name.
Very attached to respect for living things, Valentina has applied biodynamic practices to the estate since 2000. The harvest is done manually and in small 20 kg boxes. Through its wines, Valentina wishes to show the unique expression of the region's indigenous and traditional grape varieties: Nero di Troia, Primitivo, Negroamaro, Bombino bianco and Montepulciano. Most of the estate's vintages are single-varietal.
In the cellar, vinification is done as naturally as possible: destemmed harvest, spontaneous fermentations, native yeasts. The wines are unfined and unfiltered, and bottling is done without or with very little sulfur. Valentina seeks for her wines the expression of the minerality of her terroir and highlights the expression of fruit and a low alcohol content.
Digestible wines, very refreshing to consume all year round.
