Planeta Rosé IGT Sicilia 2011

Member Review by vino in love:

The color went in the direction a soft pink with pale strawberry traces. Very intense aromas of caramel, chocolate, woodland strawberries and flowers were on the nose. So many aromas that they were almost too many but only almost. I probably could have smelled this wine for hours without getting tired of it. It was that great. It was smooth and not very alcoholic on the palate. The acidity was soft. A well balanced wine. The finish was medium. Alcohol by volume was listed at 12.5%.

Lots of plummy, chocolaty fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious already. Nero d'Avola, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now.

Blackberry, prune, pencil shavings, charcoal and a rubber-like note sum up the aromas of this Nero d'Avola, Merlot and Syrah blend. The wine is penetrating and intense on all levels with ripe fruit flavors and dusty tannins in the mouth.

Bright and fruity, with raspberry and chocolate character. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a pleasing finish. Balanced. Drink now.

The emphasis here is on the purity of fruit. A blend of Nero d'Avola, Merlot, Syrah and Cab Franc, this is a forward wine with cheerful red fruit, hints of fresh green herbs and sweet spice aromas. In the mouth, it's smoothly textured and easy to drink, with a touch of ashy minerality to the finish.

Bright red. Perfumed nose loaded with red cherry, floral and vanilla aromas. Fresh, pure and easygoing, with flavors similar to the aromas and a strong spice note of clove. Finishes with very light tannins and good spicy freshness. An ideal food wine.
