I'm not sure if this guy needed to breath a bit more, but I didn't taste anything that wowed me to the point of giving a rating about mid-point. $16.95 VW

Planeta is a Journey through Sicily. And that journey begins at Sambuca di Sicilia, on the estate which the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s. Here on Italy’s most enchanting island, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s. Subsequent years were spent matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Years of careful research paid off when the Planeta wines were met with immediate critical acclaim upon introduction in the U.S. in the late 1990s. Over the last few years the Planetas have become enchanted by another great district, Noto. They have purchased 60 hectares in the Contrada Buonivini, such a delightfully pure place that they wished to preserve it by building an ‘invisible winery’ which is completely underground. Soils of incredible lime and tufa content characterize the district. The Nero d’Avola variety has its origins in this land. Production Area Noto, Sicili, Italy Grape Varieties 100% Nero d’Avola Vinification The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; extraction on skins followed by 12 days of maceration. After fermenting in stainless steel tanks, the wine is matured for 12 months in two- and three-year-old French oak barrels. Color Vibrant purplish red Bouquet Aromas of red fruit such as plums and berries mingle with notes of citrus, carob, and liquorice. Taste Elegant with compact tannins; fills the mouth with balanced texture and distinctive pleasurable tang Alcohol 14% Serving Suggestions Wonderful with all meat-based and southern Italian dishes, as well as mushroom dishes and smoked ham.

"The Santa Cecilia Nero D'Avola 2006 is purple red with a violet hue. The nose is lively and characteristic of Nero d'Avola grown in the Noto area. Prune
