About the producer:

CALX comes from Fillipo Cassano, owner of the certified organic winery Polvanera in Puglia (the heel of Italy’s boot).

Calx is the Latin word for limestone, which is unique soil here for vines, and the building blocks for the ancient Smurf-like farming houses called​ trulli.The limestone imprints the Primitivo grape, giving fresh and taut wines, with notes of zingy red berries and dried figs.

Like all reds in the FUSO project - good with a slight chill.
