An intense ruby in colour with dark violet reflexes. The bouquet brings extraordinary aromas of incense and herbs, hibiscus and wild fennel. Luminous and lyrical which recounts the character and refinement of great red mountain wines but at latitudes not far from Africa. The tannins of compact texture are extracted with elegance. The sweetness and generosity of wild fruits and currants merges with aromas of incense and beeswax and a light, almost mineral hints on the finish.

Established in 1995, Planeta is a Sicilian wine producer built on a long agricultural tradition handed down since 1500 through 17 generations in the area between Sambuca di Sicilia and Menfi. Today Planeta represents not just one, but six ways of developing the territory, in six different settings. There are, in fact, six Planeta wine producing estates, each one with a specific research and development project. Through its family properties, Planeta can conduct a virtual journey around Sicily and its greatest wines. The stages are up-to-date and innovative yet consistent with a historical and ritualistic interpretation that elsewhere has almost been forgotten. Planeta's project calls for patient and meticulous research, never hurried, and looks just as much to the past as to the future. The company's activity has one absolutely essential point of reference: environmental sustainability, achieved through landscape conservation, renewable energy, recycled materials and sustainable agriculture, with the utmost respect for the territory, cultural heritage and the communities within which the company operates.
