Powerful and dense, rich fruit are very much southern Italy, with flavours of bilberry, preserved cherries, rosemary and cocao that no Bordeaux can claim.

In the local dialect, Burdisi/Burdese means ‘from Bordeaux’ and evokes the classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is a red wine of great density, structure and balance, produced in limited quantities from selected vineyards. Burdese is a wine for long aging which offers olfactory and tasting complexity which has few counterparts in Sicily.

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.
