Planeta Santa Cecilia Noto DOC

2013

In a Nutshell

One of the best examples of Sicily's signature grape variety.

Tasting Notes

A very spicy fruity wine, brilliant and clear, perfumed with carob, bergamot and orange peel. The compact ripe fruit and balsamic notes on the palate dissolve in a sweet and vigorous manner to accompany tannins of dense texture but also open and calibrated to the structure of this wine of deep baritone tones. Traces of graphite confer elements of a high tasting lineage while cleverly elicited wild blackberry and cherry maintain the wine on a register of rigorous style and taste.

Fantastic right now (though we recommend decanting) but this will reward those with a couple of years patience...

Production Notes

Destemming followed by 12 days of maceration in grapeskins in stainless steel tanks; after decanting, maturation for 12 months in Allier oak casks used twice or three times.
