ColourStraw yellow with greenish hue.
TCD Opinion
Vintage very difficult for the Sicilian viticulture. Climate occurrence that has encouraged massive attacks of mildew that has led to loss of production. However, the fewer bunches per vine, brought to an excellent quality of the product. Harvest very early especially for whites.

TasteGood freshness, intensity, taste and continuation olfactory.
ColourLight pink.
TCD Opinion
Although 2007 was not the best vintage in Sicily this factor is less felt in Rose wines where the vinification processes play an important role. Italian Rose wines don't have the best reputation which is truly underserved, as such you can pick up rather good wines like this for far less than their French counterparts.

Low alcoholic content on a fun and fruity rose from Sicily.

TCD Opinion
Still quite a young dessert wine but from an interesting vintage. The Liqouroso is a fine offering from this vineyard.

Very good dessert wine. The Moscato from Sicily has such a varied bouquet and taste that it is definately something to take your time over and enjoy.

This vintage has been characterised by abundant rains in winter and by mild temperatures. Excellent weather conditions during maturation and colouring of the fruit on the vine, the vintage occurred on 18th Sept. and the temperatures were high and dry.

Nero d'Avola and Syrah together. These kissing cousins compliment each other beautifully in a low yield very special bottle.

TCD Opinion
The Planeta Santa Cecilia is a wine to drink today and will be at its best from now until 2009. This is not a bottle to add to the cellar but an enjoyable wine for Nero d'Avola enthusiasts.

One of the worlds best examples of Nero d'Avola.

TCD Opinion
Close to perfection, give this wine until 2010 for its best possible expression. The wine is simply stunning now, so the temptation might prove too much. In this price range this is one of the finest wines we carry.

Exciting wine from Sicily's famous Planeta producer. Lovely chocolate and berries taste, long finish and a well deserved 93 points.
