Lucky me that I didn't learn about Cerasuolo di Vittoria from this bottle. Red fruits and raw meat. Sound good, right? Unfortunately, it also has perfume and vegetable notes. It's decently balanced. It has a medium body. But boy, it needs some food to back it. Table wine. Not bad per se, yet there are far better choices.
Despite the rich wine history that spans over 3000 years, Sicily started to appear on international wine maps only in the last few decades. Planeta winery is among the leading winemakers responsible for quality revolution on the island. Alessio Planeta decided to experiment with international grapes alongside autochthonous ones. In 1985, after establishing the first winery at Ulmo, they planted their first vines. And ten years later, they released their first wine - Chardonnay. Many consider (citation needed) that this particular wine (among a few others) changed the perception of Sicily on the international market.
Today Planeta owns 6 wineries across Sicily: Ulmo and Dispensa in Menfi, Dorilli in Vittoria, Buonivini in Noto, Feudo di Mezzo on Etna and La Baronia in Capo Milazzo.
