A stunning dessert wine from the island of Sicily. Composed entirly from the ancient Moscato Bianco grape, this extraordinary dessert wine was produced from grapes harvested at an already-advanced ripeness, after which they were laid out and dried to only half their original weight. Rich in ripe stone fruit and tropicals, with defined florals, this delicious sticky also offers a perfectly poised freshness. Gorgeous stuff to drink now or cellar.

Overview

Grape

Grillo

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

Winemaker notes on current 2018 vintage

"The six weeks of drying guarantees a high concentration of sugars and some natural transformation of the grapes contributes to the extraordinary aromas of apricot, rose petals, papaya and quince. Sweet and fleshy in the mouth, but also lively with citrus notes. It recalls nougat and candied ginger. Wine made to match with the best sweets, and having been dried could possibly favour dried fruits as well as being enriched by fruits with a prominent acidic content."
