Reviews of purchase Planeta, "Santa Cecilia", Sicilia IGT, 2005
The wine is characterized by complex, enveloping, smooth and elegant taste, balanced structure, soft tannins and a pleasant sweet fruitiness. Taste is woven from the nuances of cherry, strawberry, cranberry, herbs, tobacco, dried fruits and earth. The wine has an attractive, long, silky, delicate and complex aftertaste with hints of red fruits and aromatic spices.
Exquisite, intense aroma of the wine reveals hints of plums, ripe berries, carob, rice, pepper, wild cherry, black currant, tobacco, rosemary, chocolate, espresso butter and sage.
Wine perfectly combined with various meat dishes, tagliatelle with mushrooms and sausage, braised beef, venison, pasta with meat sauce, grilled tuna, couscous with meat, "timballo" with wild herbs, lamb in sauce with mashed potatoes, fried pork loin, first dishes and ham.
Planet - a name the family of Italian winemakers, whose three members - Alessio, Francesca and Santi - together with the oenologist Carlo Corino today run this economy. Family Planet has contributed greatly to agriculture in the region of Sicily. As for the wine, although the industry is relatively new for them, nevertheless a very short time they built an empire of the four estates with vineyards and two wineries located along the southern coast of Sicily and connected by a road. Winery Ulmo was the first step of the family of planets. It was built in 1995 near Sambuca di Sicilia, and her work is focused on white wines, mostly on Chardonnay and Fiano. It produces Segreta Bianco, Alastro, Cometa and the famous Chardonnay - a wine that has brought the company worldwide fame. There are also beautiful tasting room, located in the mansion of the XVI century, many vineyards and old olive grove. Then, in 2001, built a winery Planet Dispensa near the town of Menefee, closer to the coast. Here, their efforts are focused on red wines and the winery is surrounded by the largest of the family-owned vineyards. This winery produced Segreta Rosso, Merlot , Syrah and a great Burdese - Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The planet has more vineyards further east: in Noto (Syracuse) with Nero d'Avola and Moscato in the family homestead Dorilli in Acate, where they grow autochthonous red varieties Nero d'Avola and Frappato.
Wines Planet - exclusively and consistently high quality - their rightful place among the best wines of the Italian manufacturers and were marked by many awards specialized wine competitions and tastings.
