A great value wine from Sicily present on restaurant lists across southern Italy, La Segreta is a famously food-friendly red blend that offers light berry, cherry, almond and spice aromas. The easy mouthfeel pairs with pasta, risotto, veal or roast chicken.

...the star of Planeta's line is La Segreta, a $15 gem that blends 50 percent Nero d'Avola with 25 percent merlot, 20 percent syrah and 5 percent cabernet franc. Again a sea breeze comes to mind, this time carrying perhaps the smoke from a bonfire on the beach: a jumble of wood flavors tossed on the flames, plus plums and cherries, and did I mention the smoke? It's a slurry of aromas and flavors that would make no sense as a recipe ingredient list, but they come to mind in a rush as I explore this wine in the glass. The wine is a delightfully elegant charmer that seduces right from the start.

La Segreta is a well-executed, unoaked and affordable blend of Nero d'Avola, Merlot, Syrah and Cab Franc that offers distinctive aromas of cherry, pomegranate juice, almond paste and light nuances of exotic spice and vanilla. It has polished tannins and an easy disposition overall.

While some Sicilian wineries are just starting to penetrate the American market, MandraRosso and Planeta are two labels that are available now and provide excellent introductions to the quality wines of this historic island. Those who prefer red will like the Planeta La Segreta Rosso produced from indigenous Nero d'Avola grapes blended with merlot, syrah and cabernet franc. This fruit-forward wine with soft tannins provides the ideal complement to special dinners. Reserve the Planeta Rosso for meals that include risotto, lamb and grilled meats.
