Description:
Ruby red to deep purple tones. Intense and persistent on the nose with notes of black fruits like cherry and blackberry; chocolate, leather and spices integrated with creamy vanilla and nut coming from the wood. On the palate the wine is full bodied, velvety and warm. Ending with soft and sweet tannins and with a long sumptuous finish.

Colour:Ruby red with violet undertones.
Nose:Displays intense characteristics of peppers, spices and berry fruits attributed to the hot Sicilian sun, more in keeping with the New World rather than French styles.
Oak ageing has added complex aromas of figs and cocoa.
Palate:Luscious and supple in texture, both the tannin and fruit are young and fresh and bring a lasting power to the palate. It's beauty lies in it's complexity though, rather than it's concentration.

Young, luscious blakberries are tempered with spicey cloves and cocoa in this super stylish modern Sicilian Syrah.

Drinks on release but will mature for 5 - 7 years.

Will pair very well with grilled red meats, particularly game with rich sauces, and matured cheeses.
Sicilian cookery: Rigatoni with red tuna and mint, risotto, stuffed leg of lamb, mixed grilled kebab, marsala cutlets.
Sicilian cheese: Pecorino siciliano.

The grapes were harvested from Planeta's Dispensa and Gurra vineyards. They were fermented on the skins in stainless steel fermenters, then aged in American (1/4) and Allier (3/4) oak barrels.

Producer Information

Four wineries, three provinces, a single affinity, a single theme which unites southern Sicily from east to west. Noto, Vittoria, Sambuca and Menfi. The birthplace of Planeta wines lies within these four areas which are the hottest and driest parts of the whole island, and all fairly close to the sea.
But the resemblance finishes here and the many differences must be reckoned; the soil, the vines, the altitude, the wind, among so many others.
When there is dawn in Noto, it is still dark in Menfi; and when the sun sets in Vittoria, it is still dusk at Sambuca. And then there are all the responsibilities which depend on man; the strength to gamble, the power of optimism, and the conviction that the potential of action can be effective even in Sicily.
