Planeta have crafted a lovely Rosé which ever what you flip it. Beautiful colour, mouthfilling red berry fruits, a supple and dry finish and a hint of spice and bitterness. Drink it now and often. Drink it with whatever takes your fancy.
Founded in 1995 Planeta comprises of six estates across Sicily. Each estate tends their own vines and makes their own wines allowing them to properly express the terroir of their sites. They use both native and international grapes to make their wines. The quality is uniformly very high added to the fact their wines are generally available so you can always have a taste of Sicily.
In a constant tussle with Puglia to win the title of largest volume produced each year, the wines of Sicily are as varied as its history. Delicate whites, full bodied reds and of course Marsala show the variation in climate and abilities of the various regions within the Island.
A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or wine maker influence. The Syrah based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
