The Vincast with Alessandro Dettori from Tenute Dettori

Sardinia is one of the most unusual wine-producing regions in the world, and there are few producers more unique than Tenute Dettori. The Romania area, located in the northern part of the island, is famous for its cannonau-based red wines; robust, rustic and long-lived. Alessandro Dettori took the mantle of running the estate at a very young age when his grandfather passed away and insisted that he take over. Since then he has been on a constant quest to maintain the traditions set out by his grandfather, whilst making the best most-representative wines he can with as little human impact as possible.

Tenute Dettori – Prowein 2015

Tuderi 2007
Interestingly savoury chocolate salty notes, very supple fresh long, lovely finish builds on the back of the palate.

Ottomarzo 2011
Really interesting chocolate salty dried fish, tight crunchy fresh, bright bold light but concentrated.

Tenores 2010
Tight focused round intense, velvety ripe florals, some sweet fruits. The warmth is there but not overwhelming.

Dettori 2011 (pre-phylloxera vines)
Very subtle, shy on the nose, sweet dark fruits, super intense explosive on the palate, highs and lows, very complete, a lot fresher than the 2005.

The Vincast talking Sommeliers with James Dossan

On the third episode of The Vincast I sit down with my friend James Dossan who is a certified sommelier. We chat about what a sommelier is in the traditional meaning, what their responsibilities are in the modern dining environment, how they work with a team, and how they assess wines for their list.
