Tenute Dettori ‘Tuderi’ Badde Nigolosu Romangia Rosso IGP 2014

Estate: Tenute Dettori is located in Badde Nigolosu, in the commune of Sennori in the northwestern corner of Sardegna. Vines have been cultivated on the property since “time immemorial”. Badde Nigolosu is a subzone, similar to a “cru”, the vineyard is in a natural amphitheater located in high hills ringing the town. In fact, each of their vineyards is devoted to one particular grape, with each wine essentially being a single vineyard wine.

Winemaking: Certified organic and biodynamic, they practice low intervention in both the vineyard and cellar. Nothing is added to the wine, including yeast, enzymes, neither is the wine filtered or clarified. [All of their wines are suitable for vegans.]

Philosophy: The family focuses on tradition and the history that has been passed down to each generation. “We want our wines to reflect the quintessence of our corner of the earth, our own true terroir. We 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.”

Tasting Notes: Transparent garnet with brick edges in colour. With black cherry, strawberry, black currant, paprika and smoky meat aromas. Berry pie filling [strawberry, blackberry, raspberry], fig, caramel and baking spice are accented by fresh acidity and light, silky tannins. Sweet fruit and peppery spice fuse on the lengthy finish. Rich and lush, with an almost Port-like character.
