A very spicy fruity wine, brilliant and clear, perfumed with carob, bergamot and orange peel. The compact ripe fruit and balsamic notes on the palate dissolve in a sweet and vigorous manner to accompany tannins of dense texture but also open and calibrated to the structure of this wine of deep baritone tones. Traces of graphite confer elements of a high tasting lineage while cleverly elicited wild blackberry and cherry maintain the wine on a register of rigorous style and taste.

Santa Cecilia is the top-of-the-range wine, from the most important Sicilian variety; Nero d’Avola. The extensive research into finding the ideal place for making a great wine from this variety brought them to Noto, original territory of this variety, where DOC Noto reigns in the extreme south-east of Sicily. With its white lands and its antique vines, it has always been the epicentre of Nero d’Avola cultivation. Santa Cecilia is an expression of elegance, power, balance and exaltation of the unique aromas of 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.
