Valentina Passalacqua is the soul of the Calcarius Project born on the Gargano, a step away from some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy. In the municipality of Apricena is the limestone to mark the lives of people. We are in the first extraction center of southern Italy and the Apricena stone (consisting of 96% calcium carbonate) even embellishes some decorations of the palace of Caserta. On this terroir at 150 m above sea level, with a favorable South-West exposure, the 45 hectares of the farm unfold, of which 20 are used for vineyards, cultivated mainly with native varieties that are the result of a historical-cultural contamination that has its roots in Magna Graecia: Nero di Troia, Bombino, Greco, Falanghina, Negroamaro and Aleatico. The carefully not-interventionist approach does the rest, defining wines with an intriguing and tasty character that have won us over. The one indicated on all the labels is the atomic number of calcium.
