Details of wine

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The eruption of 1614 is legendary, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halting right on the edge of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A very evocative name for our Cru dell'Etna. At the time of planting the vineyards, in keeping with our spirit of research, we planted a small vineyard of Riesling. An extraordinary grape variety which loves altitude and lava soils. An experiment that time will help us judge.

Color

Colore tenue con riflessi verdi.

Smell

Naso ancora giovane con tutti i precursori tipici della "varietà dei re": mela bianca, susina, limone, fiori gialli.

Taste

Al palato è perfettamente secco, con una acidità non eccessiva. Il gusto è forse il suo punto di forza in questa fase giovanile, con quel gusto "minerale" sul quale tanti esperti si confrontano per poterlo descrivere.

Pairings

La sua acidità vibrante e sapidità pronunciata sposa bene con tutti i gusti ?puri': sgombro e dentice, preparati in forno o al vapore, piatti a base di riso e verdure, ortaggi crudi e nelle cucine etniche con i sashimi, o cambiando continente con i quesadilla.

Planeta is a journey through Sicily. A journey from west to east Planeta is a 'Journey through Sicily'. A journey from west to east, that proceeds from Sambuca di Sicilia and Menfi as far as Vittoria, Noto and Etna. The stages of the Journey are the five wineries that Planeta has built within each of their vineyards. Five 'boutique wineries', each inspired by the particular requirements of the vineyards; Ulmo at Sambuca di Sicilia, the Cantina Piccola and Cantina Grande at Menfi, Dorilli at Vittoria, Buonivini at Noto, and soon to be joined by the sixth, Sciara Nuova on Etna. Each one inspired and constructed in harmony with its surroundings. Planeta's plan of action has been stimulated by the five wineries and the 390 hectares of vineyard which surround them. Patient and careful research, never hurried, looking as much to the past as to the future. Above all with profound links to the oldest wine-making traditions of Sicily and its unparalleled wealth of indigenous grape varieties. The guidelines of the plan are extremely rigorous in this direction; to promote the characteristics of these great vines by cultivating them exclusively in their respective selected areas, thus Nero d'Avola and Moscato at Noto, Frappato at Vittoria, Grecanico at Sambuca and Menfi, and soon Carricante on Etna. Another part of the plan lies within the arena where the best wine producers from five continents are judged. Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet; great classics of international wine-making interpreted by a territory that marks them in an unmistakeable manner, giving rise to wines that are profoundly Sicilian as much as the great indigenous varieties. Without forgetting the most energetic and almost visionary investigation into varieties and territories which allowed us to achieve a great Fiano for the first time in Sicily. All the company's activities have a single thread; environmental sustainability. Through the use of solar panels and biomass production, principally pruning residues, to produce energy, through the re-use and recycling of all materials used in the production cycle and the exclusive use of recycled paper for packing and printed materials. Because the land and the environment are a collective benefit as well as the company's heritage, and it is a duty to make every effort to preserve it. Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta established the company and this plan of action, but the whole family is with them, rooted in the reality of Sicilian agriculture for generations. A family and a company which has always given themselves ambitious aims, following the diktat of quality, a rigorous respect for the environment and for social responsibility. From the family properties at Menfi and Sambuca di Sicilia, and then at Vittoria and Noto to the latest acquisitions on Etna, a single Journey, through Sicily and its greatest wines.
