A satisfying and characterful red from Sicily. Grown in the tradition home of the Nero d'Avola grape -- the area of Noto in island's south-east -- this beautiful red is mainly Nero with a bit of Merlot. Ripe and fairly dark fruited, this beautifully cosmopolitan-yet-rustic style is an effortless accompaniment to most foods and a classic example of Planeta's great value for money.

Grape

85% Nero d’Avola, 15% Merlot

Its Origins

"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

90/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Made predominantly with Nero d'Avola with a touch of Merlot, this offers aromas of dark berry, baking spice and underbrush. The savory plate offers black currant jam, vanilla and a hint of green peppercorn accompanied by fine-grained tannins."
