This very pleasant, velvety red wine is made from 100% Frappato grapes, a rare and exclusive grape variety grown on just a few hectares, which comes into its own in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. The grape produces aromatic red wines such as this one with roses and violets on the nose and an elegant smoky touch. The wine is a beautiful ruby red in color with purple reflections and in the mouth a true explosion of red fruit and a hint of balsamic.

The wine is great to drink on its own, but can also be used widely with meals. It tastes delicious with pasta dishes, but also, for example, a cheeseburger or an onion soup. Also delicious with fresh, soft cheeses.

The grapes were harvested at the end of September and then pressed very gently and gently with a basket press (vertical pressing). They are then destemmed for 7 days on the skins, followed by fermentation and maturation in stainless steel vats until bottling.

Planeta is one of the winemakers who put Sicily back on the map as an area for superb wines. From West to East he planted vineyards and set up 'Boutique Wineries'. Planeta is innovative, contemporary, however, in keeping with historical interpretation and the wine rituals that have been almost forgotten.
