DETTORI: SARDINIA'S REBEL LEADER, AND YOUR NEXT SPAGHETTI WESTERN PAIRING

For little more than a few fistfuls of dollars you can try one   Italy has a colorful range of cult wines from an immense variety of grapes, but Dettori is one of its most idiosyncratic estates. The wines are rarely seen in the US, where the robust, unsulfured styles show poorly if not perfectly stored (like we do!). It's purely a passion project for us to carry these antique artifacts, which seek to recreate the style of wine produced in Sardinia for the last 3000 years. When Alessandro Dettori joined his father at the winery in 1990, it was a time of modernization. International grapes and new barrels were the predominant style. They vinify and release some of Sardinia's most quixotic wines, wines that defy categorization with their marriage of alcoholic solar power, textural profundity, and wild and untampered complexities. You'll find Cannonau (Sardinia's genetic sibling to Grenache), Vermentino, and dry Muscat in the releases below, but not in any form you have ever seen. The Dettori estate has renounced the insignificant local DOC's for each grape, choosing to release under the regional IGT for their northern corner of the island, the Romangia IGT. Wines are fermented spontaneously in concrete without temperature control, and are matured for between six months and five years. The sulfur usage here is minimal, so please keep care to store the wines at cellar temperature. When storage is correct, the magic can transcend the distance between us and Sardinia. The two Renosu wines are fruity quaffers for the summer picnics and cookouts, while the slightly orange Dettori Bianco is one of Italy's great examples of Dry Muscat. For a scarcely seen combo of hedonism and meditative sophistication, check out the reds from Sardinia's top red grapes. These were some of my favorites to present at Pappas Bros when I first arrived to Houston in 2015, and we are excited to have them back in market.   -BRANDON KERNE, MASTER SOMMELIER
