Planeta Terebinto Grillo 2022
Region: Sicily, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Aromatic, rounded white from a native Sicilian variety that's full of tropical fruit: apricots, lychees and pineapples jostle for prominence on the palate
The terebinth is a shrub with shiny leaves; always associated with Sicily and the Mediterranean countryside, from east to west. Planeta’s Terebinto is a single-variety Grillo, aromatic and intense as the best versions of this Sicilian vine, originating in the middle of the 19th century from the hybridisation of Zibibbo and Catarratto.
Planeta is the story of a journey through time and space, through Sicily from west to east, and through the five areas where today we produce their wines, olive oils and the places of our family hospitality. A long journey which was chosen in order to protect the uniqueness of the environment, the countryside and the culture with the same respect with which to explore the characteristics of the terroirs and the vineyards, enhancing the specific details of each area.
