“If being a Homo sapiens sapiens means looking but not observing, eating but not tasting, hearing but not listening, smelling but not enjoying a scent… well then, I am proud to be a Homo sapiens sapiens and nothing more.
I feel myself an animal just like the other animals. Part of planet earth and of the universe. I want to be an animal with that minimum of rationality necessary for my free will. That is why I make wine… it is the method I know for making me feel what I am: instinctually an animal.”
“I do not follow the market; I make wines that please me, wine of my own local area, wines of Sennori.
They are what they have to be and not what you want them to be.”
Alessandro Dettori – 1998 – Winegrowers, artisans of wine and of the earth
