I love to come to Sardinia every year, because in addition to the sea, the island, the food and the people who live here, there is a red wine of character, tradition and history that despite the high alcohol content I love to drink in these evenings, in these streets during summertime.
I'm talking about the Cannonau, in particular the Tuderi of Alessandro Dettori, a healthy, genuine wine, without tricks! Powerful and velvety at the same time, with an olfactory recall of rosemary, meditteranea stain and myrtle and with an explosion of ripe red fruit of plum and black cherry in the mouth. Warm, enveloping, juicy, elegant and fine despite its immense power.
The Tuderi comes from vines of 45 years, I recommend absolutely to try two other Cannonau, the Tenores coming from old vines of 65 years and the Dettori from centenary vines not grafted on American foot.
Congratulations to Alessandro Dettori for his decision not to follow the market but to produce wines that appeals to him and I must say that every year he succeeds very well.
