"The 2021 Rose wafts up with a perfumed bouquet of freshly-cut roses, wild strawberries and wet stone. Its silky and pliant in feel with a savory, salty mix of mineral-tinged apples and pears that give way to pretty inner florals. The 2021 lasts incredibly long through the finish, recalling all of the fruit and flowery notes from its nose and palate. This stunning glass of Rose is an equal parts blend of ... read more

"Planeta is one of Sicily's top wineries, and the 2021 Ros is fresh, lovely, and well-balanced. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of red fruits and attractive earth tones. Enjoy it with an avocado and Hamachi roll."
Another part of the plan lies within the arena where the best wine producers from five continents are judged. Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet; great classics of international winemaking interpreted by a territory that marks them in an unmistakable manner, giving rise to wines that are profoundly Sicilian as much as the great indigenous varieties. Without forgetting the most energetic and almost visionary investigation into varieties and territories which allowed us to achieve a great Fiano for the first time in Sicily.
In 2012, with the goal of furthering its terroir-based approach, Planeta has hired French consultants Florent Dumeau and Xaviér Choné. Both graduates of the authoritative school of enology in Bordeaux, Florent and Xavier consider themselves terroir-oriented enologists, a statement that fits perfectly with Planeta's ideas and work: namely expressing the differences of the various terroirs throughout Sicily.
Menfi, in the southeastern portion of Sicily, is the heart of Planeta and its operational base. Various types of soil are found here, but all are rich in lime and clay, ideal for the international red grape varieties which are transformed into wine at La Dispensa winery – Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
All of the company's activities have a single theme; environmental sustainability. Through the use of solar panels and biomass production, principally pruning residues to produce energy, through the re-use and recycling of all materials used in the production cycle and the exclusive use of recycled paper for packing and printed materials. Because the land and the environment are a collective benefit as well as the company's heritage, and it is a duty to make every effort to preserve it.
Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta established the company and this plan of action, but the whole family is with them, rooted in the reality of Sicilian agriculture for generations. A family and a company which has always given themselves ambitious aims, following the dictate of quality, a rigorous respect for the environment and for social responsibility. From the family properties at Menfi and Sambuca di Sicilia, and then at Vittoria and Noto to the latest acquisitions on Etna, a single Journey, through Sicily and its greatest wines.
