Planeta Mamertino 2017
Region: Mamertino, Sicily, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 60% Nero d'Avola 40% Nocera
Explosive nose with notes of mediterranian maquis, blue fruits and jammy berries.
A denomination arising from the depths of antiquity, when the proud people of the Mamertini produced this wine, described by Pliny and loved by Julius Caesar, at Mylae (Milazzo). Nero d’Avola and Nocera, 12 months maturing in 25hl casks. The little winery stands a short distance from the sea and is surrounded by spectacular vines that we planted on the promontory of Capo Milazzo.
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.
