Planeta is a wine produced by the family of the same name in various locations all over Sicily, Italy. The main estate in Sambuca di Sicilia has been in the family since the 1600s. In the 1980s, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta established the wine brand. The wines are produced around the original family estate in Sambuca di Sicilia, as well as in Menfi (where they produce the La Segreta label of bianco and rosso), Vittoria (where they produce Cerrasuola), Noto (for Santa Cecilia) and most recently, Etna. They use a combination of indigenous Sicilian as well as international grape varieties in their wines.

  • Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2004


    Herbal and lightly vegetal on the nose with a touch of sweet pipe tobacco and briar adding complexity to the core of jammy raspberry fruit. Lean on the palate with front-loaded black fruit thats supported by tannins that remain firm. This is still alive but very lean, leaving tannins uncovered on the short, slightly hot, finish. 84pts Read More

  • Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2009


    A nice, fairly complex nose with notes of spice cake, soil, and smoke over a rather beefy, slightly roasted bed of fruit, decidedly not fruit-driven. Fresh and round in the mouth with a nice note of strawberry tops highlighting the succulent acidity that drives this wine. A touch of forest floor creeps in on the mid-palate and adds to the green ... Read More

  • Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittorio Dorilli 2010


    Strawberry and strawberry leaf on the nose with a slightly creamy edge and subtle undertones of fur, mineral and a slightly green berry tone. Silky in the mouth with fine balance to the tight mid-palate with dark mineral and fruit notes. Theres a little smoke and anise adding complexity with front-loaded fruit that emerges with time. This needs ... Read More

  • Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2009


    Floral and mineral with a touch of herbs, root vegetables and old wood adding complexity. Glassy transparency in the mouth with fine-grained, slightly astringent tannins adding tension. The black, lightly spicy fruit is streaked with mineral notes and maintains great focus from entry to finish. The tannins here are a touch dry and austere, which... Read More
