Dettori

Dettori

The Dettori are small artisans of wine located in the municipality of Sennori, in the land of Badde Nigolosu, a beautiful natural amphitheater surrounded by nature, ideal for cultivating cannonau, in the province of Sassari. Historic cellars of the area, cultivate about 33 hectares of vineyards but also wheat, vegetables, orchards and olive groves, all in the utmost respect for the environment. Their agriculture is traditional and all work is carried out around the balance of nature. The vineyards planted with saplings grow on calcareous and sandy soils, which give it a white color similar to the typical Andalusian soils. They work the land of vines so that the roots can explore the soil and do not use fertilizers or other chemicals, two copper treatments a year, and grape harvest occurs when they like manually using scissors. The transport of grapes from the vineyard to the cellar takes place with an old Fiat 100 refrigerator truck and here Alessandro Dettori with his father selects every bunch. In the basement, which is built underground, the fermentations are spontaneous and only natural yeasts, no filtration or clarification before bottling are used, which takes place under the expert eye of the mother of Alexander with the help of friends and relatives. 45,000 bottles produced each year when nature is generous, in 2008 because of a peronosperate attack reduced output to only 2000 units. The wines of Dettori are of tradition and territory, they arise from the historical legacy of those who preceded them, unique, free from schemas and marketing modes.
