Region: Sicily

Grapes: Grape Nero D'Avola 50 ; Grape Merlot 25 ; Grape

Syrah 20: Grape Cabernet Franc 5

Tasting Note:

Planeta is a Sicilian powerhouse and this, from their Menfi

vineyards, is spicy, perfumed with crushed strawberry and

pleasingly finishes with a light scattering of chocolate.

Winemaking:

The 3 varietals were all harvested and vinified seperately in

order to facilitate maximum complexity, the grapes were

destemmed and crushed before maceration on skins for 10-

14 days, then ageing partly in steel vessels and partly in 2

year old barrels for 3 months.

Vineyard :

La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround

our Ulmo vineyard. This young fresh wine principally

produced from Nero d’Avola grapes, flagship of Sicilian

wine, gains its personality and style with the addition of

some international grapes. All the vines are knowledgeably

cultivated in vineyards owned by Planeta. The altitude is

between 40 and 430 metres above sea level and vines are

planted at a density of 4500 plants per hectare with the

Guyot training system.

Food matching:

A large range of dishes complement the characters of this

wine, like pasta dishes, grilled meat or even fish soup.

Unique Point:

Translated, La Segreta means 'the secret'.This Sicilian

secret is filled with ripe berry fruit and spices, made from a

blend of Italian and French grapes.
