Drink now or cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

Alessandro Dettori has passionately embraced biodynamic winemaking methods on his family’s estate in northwestern Sardinia. The verdant vineyards occupy a truly remarkable setting overlooking the glittering Mediterrnaean Sea with views out to the island of Corsica. Wherever possible Alessandro and his father work in harmony with Mother Nature, producing tiny quantities of artisanal wines that he says “are what they are and not what you want them to be”.

The family’s 29 hectares of vineyards are planted with traditional local varieties and the property even boasts some ancient Cannonau vines that were planted in 1883. Their Chimbanta is made from the less well-known Monica variety which comes from 41 year old vines planted on the estate. The fruit is vinified in concrete and glass vats without any fining or filtration and with no added sulfites. The young wine is then left to mature in these tanks for 24-30 months before bottling.

Bright Mediterannean herbs, cherries and hints of dried flowers define the nose, while the first sip reveals a medium body balanced by a gentle streak of acidity and smooth, ripe tannins. The complex flavour profile makes this a great match for classic Sardinian dishes like suckling pig, lamb stewed with artichokes, or even some peppery salami.
