Fresh and vibrant natural rosato! Summer berries and red fruits. So tangy and delicious. Negroamaro is a flavourful bugger, and that's on full display here. Be prepared to have your perception of what good Rose should offer. You want flavour, here it is.

Calcarius are based in Apricena, in the northern region of Gargano, Puglia. 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. The grape varieties are Nero di Troia, Greco Bianco, Bombino, Negroamaro and Aleatico - largely indigenous to the local area and not widely planted outside of it.
