Planeta – Rosè d.o.c. Sicilia

planeta_rosèRosé D.O.C. Sicilia
Grape variety: 50% Nero d’Avola, 50% Syrah
Area of vineyard Menfi (Agrigento)
Vineyard: Dispensa
Winery:  Dispensa

Our Rosè, fresh and fruity, contains all the feelings of a Sicilian summer. Its colour is that of  a summery sunset. The fresh aromas of strawberry make it a wine most marvellously friendly and easy to drink. Enjoy Planeta’s Rosè in good company, as an aperitif with tapas, raw fish, fresh salads or even just with seasonal fruit.

Vinification Similar to that of a white wine; destemming and  crushing, then soft pressing and a brief maceration of about 1-2 hours to achieve the ideal extraction of colour. The must so obtained, after being decanted, is racked and fermented at 15°C for 18 days

Ageing potential To drink within the year following the harvest

Kuddia del Moro IGT rosso Sicilia

Kuddia moroFrom Nero d’Avola varieties specially selected for the Pantelleria ‘soil’

Type: Red
Alcoholic content: 13.5%
Grape: Nero d’Avola
Terrain: Volcanic origin
Altitude: 360mt. above sea level
Average age of vines: 6 year-old
Expostion: North.east, West
Row orientation: Vertical trellis
First vintage: 2006
Average annual production: 7,000 bottles
Harvest: The first days of September

Kuddia del Moro is a  particolar vine because the chosen clone is also quite special. From the Mondeuse dell’Alta Savoia(the French wine much appreciated by Stendhal in Grenoble) a clone was selected which then placed the vine among two of the most famous Italian grapes. The Nero d’Avola and the Nebbiola.  As chance would have it, this vine is to be found among others on Etna between one Nerello and another and where another company has created a great wine.
Therefore it’s easy to understand the consistency of our company of implanting in the highest part of the Island at the foot of the ‘Montagna Grande’ (836 mt. above sea level) and surrounded by splendid Meditterranean maquis.

Nero d’Avola


nerodavolaPrince of the enological re-birth of Sicily, the Nero d’Avola is a very important native varietal. Nero d’Avola arguably the most characteristic of Sicilian red grapes, the hearty Nero d’Avola variety is thought to have originated in the Syracuse/Ragusa
 territory in the southeastern part of the island. Over the years, however, it has spread throughout the entire region of Sicily. A smooth, deep, slightly peppery flavor gets better over time, without losing its inherent fruitiness.
