For five centuries and seventeen generations, the Planeta family has been involved in the Sicilian agricultural sector. Their work on the island has contributed to the revitalization of Sicilian winemaking, now one of the most dynamic and sought-after viticultural regions in the world.

This noble vine is cultivated on just a few hectares in the province of Messina, facing the sea and of historic importance. La Baronia on Capo Milazzo is a spectacular vineyard surrounded by the sea, by ancient olive trees and with views to the Aeolian islands. A marine red wine, with aromas of Mediterranean macchia, myrtle and garrigue.

Tasting Notes

Deep and intense ruby red reflections. On the nose the wine is original and different from others; white pepper, geranium and summer fruits, plums and ripe Noto figs. On the palate it is soft and persuasive, the typical style of this ancient Sicilian grape variety is definitely to be experienced. The vines are still young and so is the structure of the wine, which however remains utterly original.

Food Pairing

Perfectly matched with any grilled meat.
