Tasting Note

Rich aromas of Christmas cake fruits, espresso, cocoa and sweet spices. The palate is equally rich, with mouth-filling texture, cherry fruits and chocolate. A softness to the finish that masks the pretty robust tannins. Drink now – 2025. (Edward Mercer- Private Client sales)

Winemaking

The grapes are gathered by hand into 14 kg crates, and as soon as they arrive at the winery, proceed to the table for selection, then destalked; they ferment in stainless steel vats and remain on the skins for 14 days at 250C with repeated mixing until the end of the period; they are then racked in a soft press, and the wine thus obtained undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel.

Press

  • 92/100 - Deep ruby. Enticing aromas of red/blue fruit, tar, licorice and underbrush. Big, deep and quite saline in the mouth, with real refinement to its blue/red fruit and herbal flavors. Juicy and fresh, the red cherry and floral nuances linger along with tarry elements on the long finish. Lovely. A blend of Nero d’Avola and Nocera aged 12 months in 25hL oak barrels. Part of the wine’s sales proceeds go to Gigliopoli, an association that sponsors and engages in recreational activities for children of the Milazzo area in Sicily’s northeast (where the vines used to make this wine are located).

Customer Reviews

  • Planeta have done it again....

    .....at least for me. This has loads of character and yet it is so easy to drink. As described by GWW it is rich and yet gentle, resulting in a versatile wine from Sicily's famous grape.
