An effortlessly smooth and ripe red from the sun-baked coast of Sicily. From state of the art experts at Planeta wines, this classic is made from the local Nero d'Avola grape. Made to please with any fare, this medium-bodied Sicilian is a wonderfully easy breezy style of Mediterranean red.

Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Diego Planeta, along with Giacomo Rallo of Donnfugata and Lucio Tasca d’Almerita, is one of the three founding fathers of the “Sicilian wine renaissance” sparked 10 to 15 years ago. Cousins Francesca, Santi and Alessio Planeta hold the reigns to the estate today and have developed one of the most innovative and modern wine entities in Italy (they are among the most “liked” wineries on Facebook). The Planeta family boasts a gifted hand in marketing and their hard work has only helped to develop the “Sicily” brand within the many foreign markets they penetrate."

"Made entirely with Nero d'Avola, this opens with aromas of black-skinned berry and Mediterranean brush. The juicy, easygoing palate delivers crushed blackberry, black cherry and a hint of carob alongside round tannins. Enjoy soon to catch the fruit richness."
