Bringing you the best of Italy


Praise for Planeta

Tags: , ,

Planeta’s prestigious accolades are testament to the popularity of their stunning wines around the globe and it was the local Australian press offering praise for this superb Italian producer in The Saturday Age’s weekly wine review.

The Saturday Age’s Jane Faulkner describes Planeta’s Carricante 2010 as “a beauty” with “super-fine piercing natural acidity” stating, “it really excites the taste buds”.

“This, its second vintage, is a beauty - super-fine piercing natural acidity driving the wine but it's not harsh; minerally on the palate, it really excites the tastebuds. There's a touch of dried sage, lemon sherbet plus stone fruit, racy all the way to its super long, fine finish.”

The Planeta winery was the esteemed recipient of 19 Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri Awards and Gambero Rosso the winery of the year in 1999, so the Carricante is sure to impress dinner guests.

Need inspiration? For all you foodies out there, try the Carricante with salty dishes, such as pasta with tuna ragout, pan fried fish, baby octopus soup, oyster spaghetti and cuttlefish sauce.
