“I do not follow the market; I make wines that please me, wine of my own local area, wines of Sennori.
They are what they have to be and not what you want them to be.” 1996 – Natural Winegrowers In Sardinia
These are the sentiments of true wine growers, true believers and Dettori wines are nothing if not true. Based in the north in the historical region of Romangia, a geographical area within Logudoro, which in the Sard language means “luogo dorato,” or golden place, since it is considered to be Sardinia’s most fertile area, as well as rich and vibrant historically and socially. Romangia lies between Porto Torres, Sassari, and Castelsardo, facing the Gulf of Asinara. Here Dettori have been making natural wine for generations using the local grapes Vermentino, Cannonau and Moscato as well as lesser known rare grapes like Monica and Pascale. Their top wines come from Badde Nigolosu which is their Cru vineyard, a natural amphitheatre on the highest hills around Sennori’s Town. Here the grapes achieve exceptional ripeness and complexity and go to produce profound red and skin contact white wines which intensity depth and style.
