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
