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 Bianco 2010 - 88 points, Wine Spectator/ This fresh, compact white slowly unwinds with layered flavors of melon, acacia, lemon supreme pie and a hint of passion fruit. The solid finish shows an aftertaste of fleur de sel.

La Segreta Bianco 2010 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ La Segreta is intentionally engineered to be one of those easy Italian whites that washes down fried calamari and spaghetti con vongole. Aromas include citrus, pear, white almond and honey.

La Segreta Bianco 2014 - 90 Points, JamesSuckling.com/ A white that tastes of the sea giving a salty and mineral character to the dried fruits such as lemons and apples. Full body, bright acidity and a clean finish. Drink now.

La Segreta Bianco 2013 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ A blend of Grecanico, Chardonnay, Viognier and Fiano, this opens with a fragrance of honeysuckle, stone fruit and citrus. The juicy palate offers lemon zest, nectarine and white pear alongside bright acidity.

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.

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. The trio’s newest winery is La Segreta in Menfi, upon which the Planeta winemaking expertise has been lavished to achieve wines of the very best quality. The grapes from this wine come from the Planeta winery’s first vineyard. The label pays tribute to this meaningful place with a map of the vineyard. Production Area Menfi, Sicily, Italy Grapes are sourced from the vineyards of Menfi and Sambuca di Sicilia. Grape Varieties 50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier, 10% Fiano Vinification The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; the juice is clarified through cold settling overnight and then inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation and storage takes place in stainless steel vessels. Color Straw with light greenish accents Bouquet Lively, aromatic bouquet combining mineral scents with classic aromas of green citrus fruit, lime, peach and white melon Taste Fresh, supple and round on the palate, with good balance between fruit flavors and crisp acidity Alcohol 12.5% Serving Suggestions Excellent as an aperitif, and a perfect match with raw seafood dishes, lightly fried appetizers, salads and all types of creative cuisine. A fun and versatile wine, ideal for parties and other festive gatherings.

Sicily: Italy's Next, "Next Thing"/ La Segreta Bianco 2006 is a blend of 50% grecanico, 30% chardonnay, with a touch of viognier and fiano blended in to amplify the nose. That being said the nose reflects hints of peach skin and dried flowers. Acids are bright on the attack with green apple and unripe stone fruit flavors that dance on the palate. Crisp, balanced and solidly structures for the price, it’ll drink well for the next 12 months
