Tasting Note

Absolutely beautiful young Riesling aromas of peach, juicy mango and fresh papaya, alongside distinctive notes of Mount Etna alpine herbs. The alluring scent makes taking a sip irresistible, and on the palate it's dry and crisp and yet not overly sharp. Wonderfully soft-textured, with tangy mandarin orange and mango flavours. Absolutely delicious!

The history of Etna is studded with the volcanic eruptions which have shaped it. The eruption (eruzione) of 1614 is legendary: lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, it halted right on the edge of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A very evocative name for the Planeta Cru dell’Etna. At the time of planting the vineyards, in keeping with their spirit of research, Planeta planted a small vineyard of Riesling - a variety which loves altitude and lava soils.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked into crates and immediately refrigerated at 8⁰C, selected by hand and sent for a light destalking and soft pressing. The must is racked and inoculated with yeasts and ferments at 15⁰C in stainless steel. The wine then remains on the fine lees until June with continuous stirring.
