Planeta | Sicily



Planeta Winery is one of Sicily's leading wineries, spanning five of the island's wine-growing regions. Following Planeta's story is like taking a wine journey through Sicily from west to east. This winery also started small and has worked its way up to the top Italian league since the mid-1990s. The first vines were planted on the Ulmo estate back in 1985. Today, high quality wines and olive oils are produced in the five different growing areas and offered with the same family hospitality as in the early days. Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta have chosen to press wines from the uniqueness of the Sicilian terroir, perfectly expressing their origins. - Gerardo [TS08/22]

"Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, the protagonists of the glorious family business that has turned the Sicilian wine scene upside down with its production and promotion strategies, are already harboring another new plan. After having demonstrated the diversity of the island's terroir in Menfi, Sambuca, Noto, Vittoria and Castiglione di Sicilia, on Mount Etna, they now want to revive Mamertino in Capo Milazzo, a nectar that the ancient Romans already used to sweeten their hours of rest. In view of the previous successes, expectations on the part of connoisseurs and critics alike are naturally high." - Gambero Rosso

"It is the symbolic winery for the liberation of winemaking in Sicily. It was founded a little more than twenty years ago, and from the first moment its leadership consisted of some very young entrepreneurs: Alessio, Santi and Francesca Planeta, who immediately brought a fresh wind of renewal with extraordinary effectiveness. Today there are five Planeta cellars in different areas of Sicily, and the production is more tiny. The enthusiasm and passion, and many valuable wines have remained." - Daniele Cernilli (Doctor Wine)

´Burdese´ · Sicilia Menfi Rosso DOC 2016, Planeta, Sizilien
Burdese · Sicilia Menfi Rosso DOC 2016

Planeta, Sicily

Interesting cuveé of Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet-Franc: Deep, concentrated ruby red in the glass. The bouquet is dense and concentrated, reminiscent of ripe red fruits and sour cherry, with light hints of cocoa and minerals. Wonderfully balsamic, full-bodied and silky on the palate. Great Sicilian! - Gerardo [TS08/17]

"Bright ruby with a rich violet sheen. Very intense nose with lots of ripe dark berry fruit, at the beginning a lot of tobacco and leather, then full of dark currants and blackberries, carob in the background. Straightforward and clear on the palate, lots of juicy fruit, then opens with firm, sturdy tannin, gives the wine a lot of grip, long finish." - Falstaff

"With ample intensity and definition, this wine shows the power of two Bordeaux grapes, 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, with the softness and sunny sweetness you might expect of a warm wine territory such as Sicily. The Planeta 2016 Sicilia Menfi Burdese shows a dark garnet appearance and medium rich concentration. Dried spice, scorched earth and black fruit appear on the bouquet. There is a dry, almost dusty quality to the tannins that are present but without any noticeable astringency. This would match up nicely with a classic Sicilian skillet of fennel sausage, orange slices and bread." - Robert Parker

Santa Cecilia · Nero d'Avola Sicilia Noto DOC 2018

Planeta, Sicily

Purple red with violet tones. Lively and typical of the Nero d'Avola of the Noto area: red fruits such as plums, currants and licorice. This is followed by carob, peppercorns and fig preserves, also mustard. Here it is not the weight of the tannin that matters, but rather its density. The palate exerts a centrifugal action, spreading the fragrance from the center outward, filling every nook and cranny with angular matter. - Gerardo [TS08/19]

´Didacus´ · Chardonnay Sicilia Menfi DOC 2019, Planeta, Sizilien
Didacus · Chardonnay Sicilia Menfi DOC 2019

Planeta, Sicily

"The back label of the two Didacus wines - the white from Chardonnay, the red from Cabernet Franc - reads: 'This bottle contains our vision of wine. Elegance and tradition. Family and future. Sicily as we have always dreamed of it.' Menfi and its vineyards between the sea and the hills, as a place of choice for growing French varieties - almost a Bolgheri of the South - is a vision that has accompanied the Planeta family since the mid-1980s." - Falstaff

"The 2019 Chardonnay Didacus is a pretty golden color. An exotic mix of crushed yellow apples and hints of peach is complemented by almond extract, vanilla custard and sweet smoke. This is seamlessly silky and nearly oily in feel, communicating undeniable elegance, with confectionery spices mixing with saline-minerals to create a push and pull of tension, as ripe orchard fruits settle upon the senses. The 2019 finishes impossibly long with a perfectly integrated hint of oak that lingers, which is more of an accent than a distraction, as a bitter trace of hazelnut slowly fades. This classy rendition of Didacus ranks among the top Italian Chardonnays that I’ve ever tasted." - Vinous

"The Didacus comes from the Contrada Ulmo from a plot planted in 1985. The fact that today more than 3,000 hectares of vineyards in Sicily are planted with Chardonnay certainly has a lot to do with Diego Planeta." - Weinwirtschaft

"The 2017 Cabernet Franc Didacus is dark, deep and intense, with arching blue florals giving way to masses of currants, plums and licorice. It’s silky with a dense wave of mineral-tinged black fruits carried across a core of motivating acidity that lifts the expression nicely. This leaves tart wild berries, along with hints of mocha over a coating of sweet tannins, coming across as structured yet also remarkably fresh. The heat of the vintage has pushed the volume up on the 2017 Cabernet Franc Didacus and while more-classic vintages will likely outpace it in the cellar over time, the balance here is beautiful." - Vinous
