A distinctly Mediterranean affair; blistering temperatures and fertile soils yield a delicious local-style red wine full of earthy spice and crystelline red fruit that is a true taste of Sardinia.
"In our winemaking, we do not make any use of any synthetic chemicals apart from sulphur: no added yeasts, no enzymes, or any other adjuvant either in fermentation or in maturation. The wine is neither filtered, clarified, or barriqued. Give time to rest after shipping. Leave in to oxygenate in the glass. Probable remaings and CO2 are natural. Every bottle can be different. We do not use international grape varieties to smooth out our wines
Our wines are the fruit of a historical patrimony passed down to us by those who preceded us. They are made only from grapes that we grow in our historical and traditional vineyards. All of our wines are true “cru wines”: each vineyard yields its own particular wine, they are are monovarietals: 100% cannonau, 100% monica, 100% pascale, 100% vermentino, 100% moscato. From each individual vineyard we produce a specific wine. Dettori Bianco from vermentino; three separate cannonaus, Tuderi, Tenores, and Dettori; Chimbanta from monica; Ottomarzo from pascale; and Moscadeddu from moscato. Our annual production ranges from 20,000 to 45,000 bottles. In 2008, we made only 2,000 bottles, due to an attack by downy mildew; although we watched all of our fruit disappearing on the vines, we stayed faithful to our tradition: we use no poisons. It is better to lose a season’s grapes than to pollute our earth" - Tenute Dettori
