Valentina Passalacqua's Calcarius Soulmate is 100% Montepulciano from Puglia. Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel. The wine ages in barrel for a year, during which time batonnage is performed 1-2 times per week until bottling. The wine is unfined and unfiltered, with a small amount of sulfur added at bottling. A medium-bodied zippy red with aromas of rose.
