Tenute Dettori 'Renosu' Rosso NV
The Renosu Rosso from Tenute Dettori is an easy yet elegant medium bodied red from Sardinia. It’s dry but super fruity: mild tannins and low acidity. In the nose lovely aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries and a hint of caramel with a nice little 'ripasso' character too!

Tenute Dettori is located in the northern Sardinian wine region Romangia, being a highly fertile area and rich historically, it is also called the golden place -Logudoro in Sardinian dialect. Not only the lucky vines thrive from the healthy soil but they also have the best dreamy view, overlooking the Gulf of Asinara.
The vineyard has been naturally bio-dynamic basically since time unknown. Fig and olive trees, domestic and wild animals take care of a fertile soil. Even foxes and wild boars are regular visitors! They do not use any chemicals or additives apart from a small amount of sulphur in the Renosu line. There is no filtration or fining carried, either.
It all couldn’t get any more eco-friendly, as they use the lightest bottles possible, recycled materials for packaging and reduce merchandising to the minimum. “They are not wines that are slaves to business logic and marketing strategies.” It’s pure “squeezed fermented grape juice”.
As they say “The wines are what they have to be and not what you want them to be.” A strong belief that goes against industrial, conventional wine production. The same grape variety coming from different plots can be so different from one another and this is the reason why they decided to not be part of the DOC system. They opted more for the IGT classification which categorised high quality wines only based on location.
Don’t expect to find the Demeter logo on their bottles either, even though they farm bio-dynamically for centuries, their wines should be chosen for their taste and philosophy and for the certifications.
