Details

Harmoge Bianco Prima Terra 2011 (Skin Contact White), Natural Wine, Vermentino, Bosco, Albarola, tastes of the Mediterranean sun and scrub! A really special white wine from rare grapes and a unique source. Walter de Batte is the wine maker at Prima Terra and his are artisan wines par excellence. The minerality in the wine derives from the Rocky soils and the proximity of the sea. The balsamic and strong herbal quality of the wines comes from the abundance of wild herbs, garrigue, pine and flowers in the vicinity and the rich fruit character comes from the low yields of the rare grapes. Terroir is not that often expressed as strongly as people might believe but in the wines of Prima Terra, you are transported to the sun drenched sloped vineyards of the 'Cinque Terra', sipping your wine and gazing on a Mediterranean sunset, pure luxury! Try this with home made Pasta and Pesto Genovese made with only the finest Biodynamic Olive Oil from Liguria and you have a match made in gastronomic heaven.

Prima Terra was founded in 2003 as a result of ta joint passion for the Cinque Terre and for winegrowing. Walter di Batté is the resident winemaker here, and he employs traditional methods, eschewing chemicals and using skin contact with the whites to add extra texture and dimension. All the wines represent the unique region from which they come, a combination of mediterranean sea, rocky soil and the rich biodiversity which surrounds the vines with herbs and wild flowers. Whilst they do not adhere to any certification, they strive to work as naturally as possible.
