Nero d’Avola

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

Vinous, Eric Guido

"Peppery herbs, florals and hints of wild strawberry lift up from the 2019 Nero d'Avola La Segreta. It’s soft and juicy in nature, with a smoky display of ripe red berries offset by a twang of spiced citrus. Violets, lavender and hints of pomegranate linger long, as this tapers off savory and classically dry." Drink 2021 - 2026

Wine Enthusiast (2017 vintage)

"Made entirely with Nero d'Avola, this opens with aromas of black-skinned berry and Mediterranean brush. The juicy, easygoing palate delivers crushed blackberry, black cherry and a hint of carob alongside round tannins. Enjoy soon to catch the fruit richness."
