Valentina Passalacqua - NV Sovracchiaro Bianco Bombino 1L
Valentina Passalacqua describes her wines self reflexively: ‘strong, firm, authentic, dishevelled, without tricks, pleasant and long-lived…they are wines that know how to thank the work done every day between the rows; they thank the sun that warms the fruits in the daylight; they thank the cool nights…’ Located 200m above sea level inside Gargano National Park in Apricena, Puglia, Valentina’s family winery has been operating since the early 1900s, farmed biodynamically for the past 20 years. Wines are fermented with native yeasts and never filtered not fined, with little to no sulphur addition. Valentina’s vinos are rustic yet refined; evoking the rocky limestone land that was once deemed only suitable for cattle.
This juicy white was crafted from the estate's young Bombino Bianco vines, growing on clay and limestone, farmed biodynamically and harvested by hand. Spontaneous fermentation, off skins, without temperature control in stainless steel, followed by a short maceration. Low alcohol content and very fruity, with long and elegant acidity. Way too easy to drink.
