EXCLUSIVE! Valentina Passalacqua's might be best known around these parts for her legendary easy-drinking Calcarius range but there's a whole different side to Valentina that she shows off through her "Cru" wines.

Saggezza 2019 is made from one of our personal favourite grapes, Nero di Troia. Once harvested the grapes undertake spontaneous fermentation in opened steel vats with 4 days of skin contact, unfiltered and with no temperature control before being aged for 6 months in steel tanks. The color is an intense ruby red with aromas of cherries, red flowers, and rhubarb with a touch of mint on the end. Getting on to taste, this is a big vigorous wine with notes of bitter chocolate, plum, and big boy character. 
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‚Äôs 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 ‚Äď 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‚Äôs wines are pure, elegant, never soupy as you sometimes see in wines from Puglia (it‚Äôs hot there). Because, she is careful about canopy management (to ensure grapes don‚Äôt get cooked) and picks early to retain freshness and acidity.¬†
