Planeta is a Sicilian wine company established in 1995. Planeta is not one but six ways of articulating the land in six different contexts. Such is the number of estates which produce their wine; boutique wineries each seeking, through careful research, to celebrate its locality. Ulmo at Sambuca di Sicilia (AG), Dispensa at Menfi (AG), Dorilli at Vittoria (RG), Buonivini at Noto (SR), Sciara Nuova on Etna at Castiglione di Sicilia (CT) and finally La Baronia at Capo Milazzo (ME) are the Planeta locations, a total surface area of vineyard of 364 hectares.
Planeta - Didacus
White – 100 % Chardonnay – Bold, dry
Didacus is a pure expression of Chardonnay executed in a beautifully Burgundian style, complete with a sunny Sicilian twist. As the wine takes on more weight in the glass, it begins to reveal rounder and more opulent tones of Sicilian almond, candied fruit, orange peel, anise seed, and salty mineral tones that recall the soft sea breezes that wash gently over Menfi in the southern part of the island. This special edition (only 6,996 bottles were produced) is dedicated to Diego Planeta, the wise patriarch of this important wine family.
Best with shellfish, vegatable based dishes and apetizers.
