Inspired by a pink Sicilian sunset, Planeta Rose wine has a light and attractive nose with notes of rose petals, pomegranate and strawberries. On the palate, the wine is silky smooth, light and fresh with no angularity and a beautiful finish.
Background: Since its inception in 1985 the Planeta winery has in a relatively short space of time established itself as one of the most dynamic and quality orientated wineries in the whole of Italy. The fact that the estate is based in the south west corner of Sicily - an island which for so long has been a quality winemaking backwater - makes the achievement all the more remarkable. Run by cousins Francesca, Alessio and Santi Planeta the estate won the coveted Cantina dell'Anno (Italian winery of the year award) in 1999 and has gone from strength to strength in the intervening years.
