Planeta La Segreta Il Bianco
Planeta is a Sicilian powerhouse and this wine from their Menfi vineyards between 45 and 100 metres above sea level shows why. The La Segreta range takes its name from the woods which surround their vineyard, and Il Bianco is a young fresh wine principally produced from Grecanico grapes with Chardonnay, Fiano and Viognier adding unique touches.
Static decanting of must after destalking and soft pressing; ferments at 15⁰C in stainless steel vats, remaining there until bottling. This brings a full, dry wine with bags of exotic fruit Aromas of citrus, white peach, lychee and pineapple fall on to the balanced, mineral palate with added papaya and yellow melon before a long finish of subtle mint and chamomile. Try with various appetisers, salads and light pasta dishes or seafood.
Planeta is owned by a family who have been involved in agricultural evolution in Sicily for five centuries and through seventeen generations. Their wine cultivation prides itself on always being inclined to openness and innovation, inheriting an instinct to generate positive changes with each generation. The first vineyard was planted in 1985 and they continue a love for the land, and desire to protect it.
