Calcarius Falanghina Nù Litr Orange(1 L)
£19.70/ 1 L btl
To the eye Nù Litr Orange, made from pure Apulian Falanghina grapes, has an orange colour; floral notes and aromatic herbs intertwine with hints of oriental spices, composing an elegant and refined aromatic bouquet reminiscent of spring freshness. A monument of complexity, but the drinking experience is disarming. On the palate it is in fact fresh and sapid, very sapid, characterized by citrus flavours of mandarin and orange. A wine of splendid acidic tension yet creamy and Mediterranean. A true champion at the table, where it is unbeatable throughout the whole meal, from the appetizing entrée to the meat second courses.

Perfect summer drink
If you're new to biodynamic and natural wines, this is the perfect orange wine to start with. I wish I had it on tap!
Lovely and unusual
Love this wine. Had it at a tapas place and found it online here. Great for a change for summer drinking

Calcarius, or "limestone wines". Exactly, because the soil of Gargano, the northern corner of Puglia, is deeply calcareous, where the winemaker Valentina Passalacqua, from Puglia, and Danilo Marcucci started the project that bears this name. The municipality is Apricena, recognised as the most suitable in a region, Gargano, with wine potential that is not yet fully expressed. With 45 hectares of vineyards exposed mainly to the south-west and well ventilated, Calcarius is not...
