A rich and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc blend. The berry flavors mingle with black cherries, hints of leather and cocoa together with earthy and mineral notes. This wine is full-bodied and energetic, with a long finish.

Planeta is a Journey through Sicily. And that journey begins at Sambuca di Sicilia, on the estate which the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s. Here on Italy's most enchanting island, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s. Subsequent years were spent matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Years of careful research paid off when the Planeta wines were met with immediate critical acclaim upon introduction in the U.S. in the late 1990s. The natural progress of Planeta's journey necessarily lead to Etna, to the Muntagna as it is called, with respect, by its inhabitants. A fascinating terroir with great potential, where Sicily is shown in a unique manner resulting from the areas soil and microclimate. These elements inspired Planeta from the beginning with an environment different from what they were used to. Harvests at the end of October, cool if not downright cold temperatures and thus different wines, different aromas and a completely different approach.

Intense ruby red with pink hues, typical of wines produced in the Vittoria area of Sicily. Fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. The palate is supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish.

Planeta is a Journey through Sicily. And that journey begins at Sambuca di Sicilia, on the estate which the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s. Here on Italy's most enchanting island, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s. Subsequent years were spent matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Years of careful research paid off when the Planeta wines were met with immediate critical acclaim upon introduction in the U.S. in the late 1990s. The trio subsequently traveled to Vittoria in southeastern Sicily in search of one of the most unmistakable wines, Cerasuolo di Vittoria D.O.C.G, currently the only D.O.C.G in Sicily. Here, they established the Planeta farmhouse at Dorilli, near land which belonged to the Planeta's paternal grandmother. This delightful wine is named for its remarkable color as cerasuolo means "cherry red" in Italian. Made from two local grapes, the Frappato imparts ripe berry flavors and freshness, while the Nero d'Avola lends a supple tannic structure,richness and intensity.

Planeta is a Journey through Sicily which begins at Sambuca di Sicilia, on the estate which the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s. Here on Italys most enchanting island, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s. Years were spent matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Careful research were rewarded when Planeta wines were met with immediate critical acclaim when introduced in the U.S. market in the late 1990s.Etna Bianco is produced at Planetas fifth and most recently built winery, Feudo di Mezzo, in Castiglione di Sicilia, the heart of Etna viticulture. The location is spectacularly located in the path of a lava flow from a 1566 eruption. The volcanic stone garden is a beautiful setting for the winery where it blends into the interesting landscape. This is one of the most famous areas of Etna, a few meters away, and in between, Planetas vineyards, Sciara Nuova and Montelaguardia.Etna Bianco is produced from Carricante grapes and partially fermented in barriques.This wine is a modern expression of this noble vine now cultivated in the splendid and unique terroir of Etna.

Frappato is a variety which is presently only grown in Vittoria, Sicly. It is characterized by a wide aromatic range consisting of elegant hints of flowers and cherry, along with soft tannins. The territory of Cerasuolo has a microclimate and a well-defined terroir with unique red sandy soil as well as substantial heat variations between night and day that contribute to all of the varietys particular qualities.Planeta Frappato is produced from a rare and exclusive grape variety, cultivated on a small number of hectares, growing to its full potential in the red sand of Vittoria, near the sea. An aromatic and approachable red wine, a perfect combination of tradition and innovation.
