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 that 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 - Santa Cecilia
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Nero d’Avola
APPELLATION: Noto D.O.C.
WINE DESCRIPTION: Purple purplish. A very spicy, fruity wine, brilliant and clear, perfumed with carob, bergamot, and orange peel. The compact ripe fruit and balsamic notes on the palate dissolve in a sweet and vigorous manner to accompany tannins of dense texture but are also open and calibrated to the structure of this wine of deep baritone tones. Traces of graphite confer elements of a high-tasting lineage while cleverly eliciting wild blackberry and cherry to maintain the wine on a rigorous style and taste register.
FOOD PAIRING: A wine that has no fear of the riskiest matchings such as pork marinated with chili pepper or dishes of fish with rich fibrous flesh.
ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14% vol
Volume: 0.75 L
