Renosu Rosso Tenute Dettori
A jewel from the Dettori winery, a wine from Cannonau, Monica and Pascale grapes grown at 300m on a hill rich in calcareous soil. The vineyard of 12 hectares is led to sapling and has an average age of 100 years. At maturity, the harvest is manual and the grapes are de-stemmed and then passed to the cement for a maceration and spontaneous fermentation that lasts from 3 to 10 days. It is refined for two or three years in small tanks, always in cement and then in bottles. The wine does not undergo clarification or filtration.
"If being Homo Sapiens Sapiens means to look but not to observe, to eat but not to taste, to hear but not to listen," to smell an odor "and not to smell ... then I am proud to be just a Homo Sapiens.
I feel like an animal on a par with other animals. Part of the planet Earth and the Universe. I want to be an animal with the minimum rationality essential to my freedom.
That's why I make wine ... it's the method I know to make me feel what I am: instinctively animal. I do not follow the market, I produce wines that please me, wines of my territory, wines of Sennori. They are what they are and not what you want them to be ". Alessandro Dettori - 1998 - Winegrowers, Artisans of Wine and Earth
In the 2008 vintage only 2,000 bottles were produced because of the downy mildew.
While seeing all the grapes disappear in the plant the company has remained faithful to the tradition: do not use poisons.
Better to lose the grapes of a season that pollute the Earth.
