    Winemaker Notes

    Vibrant purplish red in color. Aromas of red fruit such as plums and berries mingle with notes of carob, pepper and fig preserve. On the palate, elegant with compact tannins. It fills the mouth with its balanced texture and distinctive and pleasurable tang. This wine is our interpretation of Nero d'Avola from the southeast of Sicily.

    Wonderful with all meat-based and southern Italian dishes, as well as mushroom dishes and smoked ham.

    Planeta, Sicily, Italy
    Image of winery
    The Planeta family had been cultivating vines in the region of Manfi and Sambuca di Sicilia, not far from Agrigento, for more than 300 years. The company is managed today by the new generation under the direction of Diego Planeta, President since 1972, of the local cooperative and an influential figure in the increase of awareness of quality wines in this region. Other family members occupy full-time roles in the company. Alessio, with the help of Marcello, is in charge of vineyard management, Francesca looks after sales and marketing. Chiara deals with public relations and Giovanni handles administration - truly a family-fun operation. The two properties which make up the estate, Ulmo and Dispensa, both have north-west facing vineyards located at about 250 meters above sea level. Vines are trained on vertical trellises using double Guyot systems. Ulmo, which began production in 1985, has 45 hectares of vineyard, production from the 37 hectares at the Dispensa estate began with the 1997 vintage.
