Walter De Battè
Walter di Batte is a winemaker now working with Primaterra, believing in the philosophy of the 3 components of wine: the human, the grape and the terroir. His wines are characerised by a clear minerality from the surrounding sea, and rocky soil. The land, rich in diversity also lends a distinctly Mediterranean characteristic with the herbs and flora penetrating the wine. He employs traditional methods, eschewing chemicals and using skin contact with the whites to add extra texture and dimension.
The Altrove by Walter de Battè is an intense, complex and very Mediterranean white wine, characterized by lively savory aromas. It has perfumes of aromatic herbs, honey, citrus fuits, strw and flint and a smooth, velvety and mineral taste.
