Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a red wine made in Sicily. Since its inception in 1985 the Planeta winery has in a relatively short space of time established itself as one of the most dynamic and quality orientated wineries in the whole of Italy. The fact that the estate is based in the south west corner of Sicily – an island which for so long has been a quality winemaking backwater – makes the achievement all the more remarkable. Run by cousins Francesca, Alessio and Santi Planeta the estate won the coveted Cantina dell’Anno (Italian winery of the year award) in 1999 and has gone from strength to strength in the intervening years. Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is the first and only DOCG in Sicily. The Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria
is a 40% Frappato and 60% Nero D'Avola blend.
Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG is a light red colour with a pink and purple hue. Intense fruity bouquet with notes of strawberries, cherries, dry fig and raisins. Palate offers nice tannins followed by a pleasant acidity and round full mouthfeel.
