DescriptionPlaneta is a Journey through Sicily which begins at Sambuca di Sicilia, on the estate which the Planeta family has owned since the 1600s. Here on Italys most enchanting island, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began their winemaking venture in the mid-1980s. Years were spent matching the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Grown in the white soil of the Buonovini estate in southeast Sicily, where the limey ground is divided between vines and aromatic almond groves. The vineyards, totaling 126 acres are dedicated entirely to the indigenous varieties of Nero dAvola and Moscato Bianco. The Buonivini estate takes its name from the ancient district in which it is located and is home to the ultra-modern invisible cellar, located entirely below ground to minimize its environmental impact. Moscato di Noto is Planetas latest offering from this area. This distinctly dry interpretation of Moscato Bianco is bursting with primary aromas of fruit and flowers. With its refined, aromatic, and spring-like bouquet, Moscato di Noto is perfect served alone as an aperitif, or paired with eastern cooking, shellfish or fish dishes in general.
