Filippo Cassano

"Calx" Primitivo 2020

$17
Calx comes from Fillipo Cassano, owner of the Cantine Polvanera in Puglia, the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot. Calx, which is the ancient Latin word for limestone, the unique soil in this region which gives Primitivo a singular freshness. This juicy, medium-bodied, organic red is fresh and fun, with notes of zingy red berries and dried figs. Try it with salads, BBQ and grilled veggies, and even salmon. This wine is part of the FUSO project, launched by wine importer PortoVino to select natural, organically farmed, terroir-driven wines. Like all the reds in the FUSO project, it’s great with a slight chill!

Filippo Cassano

A long family tradition characterizes the history of Cantine Polvanera was founded in 2002, based on a long family tradition of winemaking and the determination of its owner and oenologist Filippo Cassano. He has always been well aware of the potential of his territory and its typical grapes. Thanks to his father’s skills in viticulture and his own training at “Basile Caramia” School of Agriculture in Locorotondo, Filippo decided to bet on pure vinification, a process that enhances the peculiar characteristics of both vines and terroir. Located between Acquaviva delle Fonti and Gioia del Colle, Polvanera is surrounded by a singular countryside, with typical dry stone walls, downy oaks and vineyards. The cellar itself is uncommon: excavated into 8 meters of limestone rock, this charming structure allows the ageing of wines at a constant temperature. Polvanera is placed next to a famous touristic area of Apulia, 30 minutes far from Itria Valley and Matera.
