Delicious, vibrant, complex and juicy. Dettori tends to show some bottle variation, this was a good one.

Really interesting. Deep, brooding, dusty, spicy, black fruits.

Eh. Thought this would be the ticket for tomatoes, seafood and caramelized fennel. Nope. More or less typical grenache nose with all the peppery violet black fruit, but then the palate's this sweet, fat, no acid blimp. Some spicy heat would tame that, maybe, but it'd take fairy gnarly puttanesca or something to do so. Some more cellar time probably wouldn't hurt either, as this is pretty primary right now. Other wines from the same producer have been good (thankfully, because I have a cellar full of their stuff), so I hope this one's just having an off night or my palate's hosed.

Dark ruby. Rose petal, violets, vaguely brambly, but much less than Zin or other varieties. Off dry palate with ripe fruit and continued floral notes. Paired with a homemade puttanesca sauce with plenty of olives and anchovy.

Every bottle I've had of this has been different, but all good. This one is very southern in feel, with a touch of RS.

Silky texture. Ripe red fruit. Pleasant.

2006, Tenute Dettori, Renosu , Romangia IGT, Cannonnau, Sardinia. 2nd bottle and better than the first. This had more fruit and not as much funkiness. I think the first bottle was corked.

2006, Tenute Dettori, Renosu Romania IGT, Cannonau and Grenache. This was a Garagiste purchase and my first Sardinian wine. John R had his typical written up on this. I knew going in that the grapes had some mildew problems.This showed in the nose and mouth as being corked. I drank the entire bottle over 3 days and don't know what to say about it. This is a very unusual wine.
