Planeta's Palate Impresses


Planeta's Palate Impresses

Sicilian winery Planeta has made an impression with wine aficionado Ben Thomas, who awarded the La Segreta Rosso 4.5 stars in his round up of Southern Italian wines.

Hand picking the 2009 vintage, Thomas noted its unique structure and luxurious palate.

"This smells and tastes of red berries, tar, rose petals, bay and fennel. It’s nicely structured, as you would expect from a well-made blend, with powder-fine, savoury tannins and impressive mid-palate weight.

"Most importantly, it’s delicious, with or without food."

We couldn't agree more! For a truly Sicilian food match, why not pair the wine with Messina styled Swordfish, or a delicious winter pasta with aubergine and gilled sausage.
