We've managed to secure a huge new signing to the UK Natural Wine world with the arrival of the infamous Valentina Passalacqua's range. The name will probably ring a bell for a lot of Natural Wine lovers due to Valentina being at the helm of the globally renowned Calcarius wines and if you think they were great, you're in for one hell of a ride with her latest releases.

Famiglia 2023 is basically the epitome of what a clean, drinkable, and fully natural wine should be. Made from a 50/50 blend of Bombino and Fiano grapes which undergo spontaneous fermentation in steel tanks for 6 days, without skins (direct press) before being aged for 6 months in steel tanks. Taste-wise this one is just awesome starting off with rich aromas of lemon, candied ginger, and walnuts and a palate of pineapple and a feint coconut vibe moving onto the finish. Big minerality and incredibly smashable which is dangerous in its 1 litre format 
Valentina Passalacqua is a trailblazing young natural winemaker in Puglia, a region not exactly known for biodynamic, no sulfur wines.  She took over her family’s land (used only for cattle grazing since 1900), located inside Gargano National Park, to create a diverse farm that includes indigenous grape varietals.  Her family considered the land too difficult, too poor, for crops, not realizing that they were actually sitting on a precious marble mine – or soil that happens to be amazing for vines.  The rocky, mineral-rich soil does not retain water (also great for vines), and proximity to the sea means cooling breezes and ventilation (another plus).  Valentina’s wines are pure, elegant, never soupy as you sometimes see in wines from Puglia (it’s hot there). Because she is careful about canopy management (to ensure grapes don’t get cooked) and picks early to retain freshness and acidity.
