Planeta family is one of the eldest families of winegrowers in Sicily now in their seventeenth generation and operating 5 wineries spread around Sicily and producing wines from many of the DOC zones. While the current family has a focus on innovation and modernity they never distance themselves from historic and traditional interpretation of wine. Their patient and meticulous work has always been directed to the past as much as to the future; on the one hand profoundly linked to the oldest Sicilian traditions of wine making with its heritage of indigenous varieties, and on the other an interest in those international grape vines which are best adapted to these territories, without neglecting the most vigorous and imaginative investigations into other varieties. Respect for the environment and development of biodiversity are the watchwords of this company.
This wine is the result of searching for an expression of this noble grape cultivated in the unique and splendid terroir of Etna. The Carricante grapes from Etna always give great satisfaction as the combination of black sand and altitude provide distinct aromas and three dimensional flavours. In this vintage we find notes of white acacia flowers, fresh almonds and mountain peaches, on the palate it is juicy and full of hints of yellow plums and prickly pear.
Colour: Light straw yellow with the goblet, with soft, green reflections.
Bouquet: The nose opens on hints of white and yellow pulp fruit, followed by mineral nuances and lightly recalled wood.
Flavour: The palate is juicy and full, fruity like the nose, pleasantly sapid and of great persistence.
Longevity 5-7 years.
