Planeta Plumbago Nero d’Avola Sicilia DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Bursting with berry fruit this has the power to take on spicy food!

Tasting Notes

A saturated purple-mauve in colour. Plumbago is dominated by aromas of ripe plums and wild blackberries and has pleasantly complex aromatic hints of incense, jasmine and black truffle. The tannin texture is varied and combines its soft, sweet and seductive aspects, like a Sacher torta, with the harder, more direct and austere elements of a block of Modica chocolate.

Production Notes

After destalking and pressing, the grapes ferment in stainless steel vats and remain on the skins for 14 days at 25⁰C with repeated mixing; at the end of the period racking by soft pressing. The wine thus obtained undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, in January it is transferred to wooden barrels for 10 months. Maturation: barriques and tonneaux used 3 and 4 times.
