Intensely aromatic with a touch of sweetness, Renosu Bianco by Tenute Dettori feels like Alsace meets Italy, wonderfully familiar yet completely unique at the same time. A medium body white wine of immense personality, expect the sweet fruit of peach, orange and apricot, balanced by wild herbs and a sea spray salinity, and one that can partner anything from the Italian classics to exotic Asian cuisine.

Renosu Bianco is made from Vermentino and Moscato di Sennori grapes grown in the region. The wine is aged for two years in concrete vats. Once bottled the wine rests for a couple of months.

As with other Dettori wines, this is a wine made with old style artisanal methods, adhering to the 'Triple A' movement: Agricoltori, Artigiani, Artisti or Farmers, Artisans, Artists.

About the producer

These wines "do not follow the market; I make wines that please me, wine of my own local area, wines of Sennori. They are what they have to be and not what you want them to be." -Natural Winegrowers In Sardinia, 1996

Dettori Wines echo these sentiments and continue to stay true to this ethos. They are based in the north of Sardinia, in the historical region of Romangia, within Logudoro, which in the Sardo language means 'luogo dorato' or golden place since it is considered to be Sardinia’s most fertile area. Romangia is a delimited geographical area to which the commune of Sennori e Sorso belongs, along a coastal portion of the Sassari province between Porto Torres and Castelsardo facing the Gulf of Asinara.

Here Dettori have been making natural wine for generations using the local grapes Vermentino, Cannonau and Moscato as well as lesser known rare grapes like Monica and Pascale. Their top wines come from Badde Nigolosu which is their Cru vineyard, a natural amphitheatre on the highest hills around Sennori’s Town. Here the grapes achieve exceptional ripeness and complexity and go to produce deep and desirable red and white wines.

Proprietor Alessandro Dettori is known for producing natural wines from single varieties – he does not practice blending and will only produce varieties that are native or considered historically important to the island of Sardinia. Moreover, he does not agree with the DOC system and produces all wines under the Romangia IGT designation, which denotes a smaller and much more restricted denomination.
