    • "Controdanza" Rosso Sicilia Noto DOC 2017

      “Controdanza” Rosso Sicilia Noto DOC 2017

      Country Dance (controdanza) is a typical dance in which man and woman face each other and unite in graceful movements - depending on the gender, the dancers interpret the music in their own way. It's the same with this wine: Nero d'Aola and Merlot - opposites attract each other, as is well known, and with the right empathy, they can adjust wonderfully to each other, creating harmony and contrast at the same time.

      Bright purple. Mulberry and plum contrast with incense and balsamic notes. The grapes all come from calcareous soils, which in turn bridges the gap and makes this young wine balanced and harmonious. Soft tannins and a beautifully integrated delicate acidity carry Controdanza into a smooth, medium-long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Aromas of smoke, dried cherries, mushrooms and hints of eucalyptus. It’s medium-to full-bodied with plenty of earthy, umami notes and citrus peel. Light tannins." James Suckling

    About the winemakersPlanetaSicily
    Planeta

    If you want to visit all five wineries of the family winery Planeta with its almost 370 hectares of vineyards, you have to make a journey through the traditionally favoured growing areas of Sicily. The journey could start in the west in the province of Agrigento, continue south in the provinces of Ragusa and Syracuse and end in the north-east on Mount Etna in the new winery in Castiglione di Sicilia, harmoniously integrated into the landscape. Because some of Planeta's most splendid locations are in Menfi, Sambuca, Noto, Vittoria, Capo Milazzo and on the northern edge of the still active volcano. The family pays maximum respect to the vines and wines that have grown historically and are rooted in tradition. She is active in research and prefers old native grape varieties. Planeta also maintains personal relations with other producers on the island in order to promote the development of Sicily as a wine region.

    At Planeta, clever marketing and wise winemaking go hand in hand. According to Francesca Planeta, ex-product manager at Nestlé and Vinum reader, the queen of Italy, it was a long time coming "Donne del Vino" as unfine, local grape varieties. To avoid alienating potential customers, the family first planted international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet and Chardonnay. She succeeded in conquering the market with these wines and then also connoisseurs for Nero d'Avola, Grecanico, Carricante, Moscato di Noto, Frappato and Nerello Mascalese. It is also thanks to the winery that the cultivation of Fiano has been successfully tested in Sicily.

    The wine company Planeta was founded in 1995 in the south of the island, in the province of Sambuca di Sicilia on Lake Arancio. With state-of-the-art cellar technology, the dynamic cousins Francesca, Alessio and - since the turn of the millennium - Santi Planeta quickly led the company to the top of Italy with the support of Alessio's father Diego Planeta, President of the Cantine Settesoli in Menfi. Four years after its foundation and before the regional expansion, the wine house was voted the best winery in the country by the wine guideGambero Rosso.

    The grape harvest in the environmentally friendly winery lasts three months. It begins in August with the precocious varieties in south-western Menfi. The harvest ends at the end of October with the Nerello Mascalese on Mount Etna. All of Planeta's wines - around 50 percent of which are exported - have a personal style in common that expresses the terroirs of the various vineyards particularly well. La Foresteria, a hotel complex in the province of Agrigento, also belongs to the family property. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The Planeta family boasts a gifted hand in marketing and their hard work has only helped to develop the Sicily brand within the many foreign markets they penetrate. Enormous credit goes to them."Robert Parker
