Dettori Chimbanta Monica 2012 (750ml/12)
Tenute Dettori is an artisanal winery intrinsically tied to its territory, Badde Nigosolu, an amphitheater of 33 hectares (80 acres) of land at 750ft of elevation facing northwest to the Golfo dell’Asinara in Sardinia. Here, wine has been made for centuries, and many of Dettori vines are over a century old. At Dettori, technology and trends are banned. Harvests are done exclusively by hand; there are no fixed schedules, only the ones dictated by the will of Nature. No modern technology or chemicals ...New York, New Jersey, Massanois Imports

Wine Spectator"Juicy and dense, with a finely knit core of crushed cherry, fig paste, wild herb and rose hip notes, as well as a skein of spice box and mineral notes that expand on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2022. 100 cases imported." - AN, 2016
