Review

Le Chimbanta est un vin au profil féminin et quelque peu sylvestre, obtenu à partir du cépage monica, l'un des plus anciens de Sardaigne. Le nom de "Chimbanta" ("cinquante" en sarde) est un hommage d’Alessando Dettori à son père pour ses cinquante ans.

Un rouge délicieux, fruité et floral, irrésistiblement savoureux. Au nez, des notes de framboise, de fleurs rouges, d'arbuste méditerranéen. En bouche, chaque gorgée séduit : des arômes de fruits mûris au soleil accentués par une vive salinité et des rappels marins. Expressif, brillant, de texture veloutée et longuement persistant.

I thought it would improve if left with the cork overnight, but it lost some of it chutzpa.

Logudoro means "golden place". And it is here, among the rolling hills of north-western Sardinia, that the Dettori family has invested in vineyards and cellars to produce an historic wine which is natural and a long way from market needs. Well-tended saplings and an around-the-clock monitored built-in wine cellar: the fruits of the sacrifices of three generations have thus come to fruition in one of the wineries most beloved by devotees of thebiodynamic method.
