Planeta 'La Segreta' Rosso 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A very forward, fruity wine that's a bit reminiscent of a full flavoured Beaujolais. The bright nose is dominated by raspberry fruit, and the palate is soft and very fruity, with good concentration. A modern style. Very good no oak

/ A blend of 50 percent Nero d'Avola, 30 percent Merlot and 20 percent Syrah. Ruby red in color, it has aromas of cherry and strawberry fruit, lush mouth feel and light concentration.

Italian Connection - Planeta/ Planeta is an impressive, critically acclaimed group of wines- at a variety of price points. You don’t have to think about it- if you see “Planeta” on the label, you know it’s going to be good.Appealing for its bright raspberry and red cherry aromas and flavors, with delicate cocoa powder and herbal notes that linger on the fresh finish. Food friendly red at a good price. Ready to drink now and over the next couple of years. A blend of Nero d’Avola, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc.

/ From the acclaimed family producer, this Nero d'Avola, Syrah and Merlot blend displays forward red cherry fruits. Soft and fruity on the palate with good concentration. A modern wine to be drunk young.

Ruby red with slight purple hue, this wine offers intense aromas of red currant, mulberry and raspberry. Mid-palate aromas reveal more complex hints of dark chocolate, roasted herbs, and mint. Supple, rounded and dry, the medium to full body is characterized by sweet, ripe berry fruits, supported by excellent acidity and a structure that adds deft balance and helps keep the finish lengthy, firm, and clean.

La Segreta Rosso 2007 - 85 Points, The Wine Advocate/ The 2007 La Segreta Rosso is 50% Nero d'Avola, 25% Merlot, 20% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc. Medium in body, this fresh, vinous red reveals nice plumpness and length in a generous, soft style.

La Segreta Rosso 2007 - WineSkinny.com/ Ripe and full of flavor, with berry and cherry jam character that is balanced with appealing spice and acidity notes. With a bright, focused finish.
