Sicilia Rosé 2019 Planeta
Pale pink, delicate and inviting. On the nose, typically floral, also notes of white peach and melon with hints of strawberry and blood orange. On the palate it is fresh, just peppery (white pepper) and fruity, a classic wine easy to drink.
Production area: Menfi, in Tenuta Ulmo, where the story of Planeta family began. The vineyard is the Dispensa, with soil of medium depth, moderately limey with mixed yellow and grey chalk, moderately fine texture, few stones present.
Grape varieties: 50% Nero d'Avola, 50% Syrah trained in spurred cordon with a density of 4500 vines per hectare.
Harvest: Syrah 28 August and Nero d'Avola 4-5 September.
Wine making: after harvest, a vinification similar to that of white wines takes place: destalking and sent to soft pressing for a brief maceration of 1-2 hours to achieve a perfect extraction of color; the must thus obtained, after decanting, is transferred and fermented at 15°C in stainless steel vats. Bottling is in the first half of January.
Alcohol content: 12.5% vol.
Serving temperature: 12°C.
Suggested food pairings: suitable as an aperitif with any snack or in combination with tapas, raw fish, fresh salads or alone with seasonal fruit. Also good with seafood and fried vegetables, tempura or sushi.
