Menfi, in the southeastern portion of Sicily, is the heart of Planeta and its operational base. Various types of soil are found here, but all are rich in lime and clay, ideal for the international red grape varieties which are transformed into wine at La Dispensa winery - Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Tasting notes
Color - Intense ruby red Bouquet - Refined scents of black currant, ripe prune and violet, with a whisper of mint chocolate; penetrating notes of sage and bay leaves Taste - Full, velvety and lingering on the palate; fruit flavors, tannins and a light acidity are in harmonious balance

Wine maker notes
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; extraction on skins followed by 14 days of maceration at 82F with fermentation taking place in stainless steel tanks. After racking, the wine matures for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Technical notes
100% Merlot

Food pairing
Enjoy with grilled meats, hearty vegetable dishes and stews.
