"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." Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner
What The Critics Say
Winemaker notes on current 2015 vintage
"La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround our Ulmo vineyard. This young fresh wine principally produced from Nero d’Avola grapes, flagship of Sicilian wine, gains its personality and style with the addition of some international grapes. All the vines are knowledgeably cultivated in vineyards owned by Planeta. La Segreta is a versatile companion for daily drinking, suitable for many different occasions."
Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner (2012 vintage)
"A great entry-level choice, the 2012 Sicilia La Segreta Rosso is a un-oaked blend of Nero d’Avola (50%), Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. It delivers a simple lineup of red cherry, almond and green olive aromas. It feels appropriately tonic and bright in the mouth and would pair with easy pasta dishes with meat ragu."
