"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
95/100 Wine Enthusiast, Kerin O'Keefe
"Delicious and loaded with finesse, this Nerello Mascalese delivers aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry and star anise, while smoky flint adds depth. Lithe, elegant tannins provide the polished framework."
17.5/20 JancisRobinson.com, Julia Harding MW
"Nerello Mascalese. Gorgeous sweet cherry fruit. So fragrant it is almost floral but on the palate there is a lovely dry texture, stony, almost chalky in its elegance. Extremely pure but with a savoury quality that is decidedly mineral, long. Taut and juicy with a gentle chewiness on the finish. (JH)." Drink 2020 - 2027
