Tenute Dettori

Tenute Dettori

Dettori's wines are the fruit of a historical patrimony passed down to us by those who preceded us. They are made only from grapes that grow in historical and traditional vineyards.

In 2008, they made only 2,000 bottles, due to an attack by downy mildew; although they watched all of their fruit disappearing on the vines, they stayed faithful to their tradition: use no poisons. It is better to lose a season’s grapes than to pollute their earth.

In 2006 and 2007, they bottled Chimbanta and Battoro, since a part of the monica vineyard had naturally dried on the vines. So they preferred to process those grapes separately to make a naturally-dried passito, a type very popular years ago.

All of the grapes and wines that do not measure up to their rigorous selection parameters are used to make Renosu. The 2006 Renosu, however, was made entirely from Dettori 2006, which was not up to standards.

The reason for all of this is that they want their wines to reflect the quintessence of their corner of the earth, their own true terroir. They produce wines of tradition and terroir. Wines that are free, free to express themselves, to express their growing area to the fullest, since they are simply a squeeze of grape juice that has fermented. They are not wines that are slaves to business logic and marketing strategies. These are not wines that have been designed and cleverly packaged for some important customer.
