Dettori Renosu Bianco – Vermentino NV (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
A pure expression of Vermentino di Sennori, this wine has a golden color when young, then becomes orange – amber, once it ages. The nose is very complex with a blast of Mediterranean herbs bergamot, apricots and acacia honey as it ages.In the mouth its ample and round with zesty vibrant acidity full of Mediterranean spices, orange peel, apricots and hazelnuts and honey.
Vinous Media"Bright medium yellow. Pungent aromas of pear, lemon, quinine, gunflint and earth. Broad and off-dry, showing good lemony lift to its round flavors of fresh citrus fruits, pear and minerals. The modestly complex finish features very good persistence and an earthy nuance." - Ian D'Agata, Jan 2016
