OUR SELECTION

 

Planeta – La Segreta Bianco 2012

planeta_biancoLa Segreta Bianco – D.O.C. Sicilia
Grape varietiy 50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier, 10% Fiano
Area of vineyard Menfi e Sambuca di Sicilia (Agrigento)
Vineyard Dispensa, Gurra and Ulmo
Winery Dispensa

La Segreta takes its name from the woods that surround our vineyard at Ulmo. This young fresh wine produced mainly from Grecanico grapes, introduced into Sicily more than 2,000 years ago, gains personality and style with the addition of international variety grapes. All the grapes are carefully cultivated in Planeta owned vineyards. La Segreta is a versatile companion for daily drinking and is also suitable for many different occasions. It is a perfect approach to Sicilian wine with its excellent relationship between quality and price, guaranteed by the Planeta family’s patient input from the vine to the wine.

Vinification Static settling of the must after soft pressing and  destemming, inoculation with selected yeasts when clear and  fermentation in stainless steel tanks until bottling takes place
Ageing potential To be enjoyed when young, its evolution can be
appreciated for the next 2 years
Tasting notes
Color A fine clear yellow with slight greenish reflections
Nose The impact is generous and exuberant. Aromas of wellbalanced citrus, pineapple and white peach
Palate Fresh and balanced, a successful balance between acidity,  fruitiness and volume which is never excessive. A full and  aromatic finish
Food matching Ideal companion for everyday drinking and for  Mediterranean cuisine; versatile in the kitchen, from aperitifs to fish
Planeta home-made dishes White and red arancine (rice balls),  fried calamari and prawns
Sicilian dishes White swordfish carpaccio, spaghetti with limpet,  spaghetti with pesto from Trapani, marinated anchovies, fried  white prawns
La Foresteria dishes Tagliatelle with bottarga and apricot jam,
lettuce and clam cold soup

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
Tasting notes
Color Pale pink with light fuschia veining and tones similar to the  interior of a strawberry
Nose Wafts of red berried fruit like Ribera wild strawberries and  pomegranate. In the background floral and tropical aromas.  Fresh young and primary aromas of fermentation
Palate Fresh and mineral, flowing with a fine acidity
Food matching Ideal as an aperitif and with raw fish
Planeta home-made dishes Fried seafood, pasta with fish roe,  fried artichokes
Sicilian dishes Garlic bread with basil and tomatoes, salami made  from Nebrodi black pigs, salad with chicken, olives and lemon,  sweet and sour pumpkin
La Foresteria dishes “Salamoreci” tomatoe soup foam with
croutons, celery and basil, dried tomato paté and Passito di Noto
