2016 Santamaria Patrimonio Blanc, 750ml

Availability: In stock (9)

Corsican Vermentino from Patrimonio in the northern reaches of the island. Complex, textured and mineral. Organic farming with biodynamic practices, no filtering and very low sulfur additions.

From the mouth of the importer (Selection Massale):

"Vermentino with 2 hours of maceration on the skins, this is arguably the top wine made at the estate. Classic and mineral, this serious and age-worthy. We cannot get enough of this wine.

Thomas is the 6th generation to take over the estate, which, over the years, has acquired 30 hectares of vines across the Oletta, Olmeta-di-Tuda, and St.-Florent communes on the island of Corsica planted in schist and limestone soils. Much like their neighbors at Clos Marfisi, previous generations had farmed in the traditional ways, and never gave into outside pressure in regards to using herbicides and pesticides, which unfortunately became common in the 1970s. Thomas has begun to take that a step further. He maintains strict organic farming principles, and is looking at biodynamic treatments as well as following the lunar cycle for all vineyard work."
