Slightly sweet and rounded, but not too buttery for this fan of crisp finishes.

A decent enough wine. Nose of flowers and fruit. The finish has some bite to it.

La Segreta 2007/ Planeta's 2007 La Segreta Bianco is 50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Fiano and 10% Viognier. It is a pleasant, accessible wine, with expressive aromatics and notes of peaches, apricots and smoke.

La Segreta Bianco 2006 - 88 Points, WineReviewOnline/ You have to love it when you can find creativity and genius in a wine that retails for well under $20 a bottle. Genius because the conventional wisdom would have counseled against planting Chardonnay in Sicily before the Planetas made it fashionable by doing it so well. And creative because La Segreta is a blend of cultures, utilizing the native Italian varieties Grecanico and Fiano with Chardonnay and Viognier to craft a beautifully balanced, multi-layered white that delivers heady floral aromas, succulent stone fruits and fresh citrus nuances. Quite the exotic blend, and delicious too!

/ Pale golden yellow. Honeyed pear and passion fruit on the nose, with a bright overlay of white flowers. Juicy and soft, with more intensity than the 2007 La Segreta, but could use a bit more brightening acidity to frame its rich citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Finishes creamy and moderately long. This wine reminds me quite a bit of the Alastro, a 50/50 blend of grecanico and chardonnay made by Planeta.

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. Easy to like, with bright, aromatic lemon, lime, cream, peach, and apple notes that mingle on the full-bodied but fresh finish. A lot of wine for the money! Ready to drink now. A blend of Grecanico, Chardonnay, Viognier and Fiano.

La Segreta Bianco 2009 - 88 points, Wine Spectator/ Aromatic and ripe, with zesty lemon curd and grapefruit notes on a waxy yet vibrant frame. Marcona almond hints fill out the minerally finish.
