Details of wine

La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround our vineyard at Ulmo. This young fresh wine principally produced from Grecanico grapes gains personality and style with the addition of some international variety grapes. All grapes are knowledgeably cultivated in the vineyards owned by Planeta. La Segreta is a versatile companion for everyday drinking and appropriate for many different occasions. It is the perfect approach to Sicilian wine, with its excellent relationship between quality and price, guaranteed by the Planeta family's patient input, from vine to wine.



Giallo chiaro con riflessi verdi che ne anticipano la freschezza.


Al naso note giovanili agrumate e floreali, acacia bianca, ginestre, erbe fresche, bilanciate da vive note mediterranee, pesca, ananas e camomilla.

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.
