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.

Sito dell’Ulmo is a single-variety Merlot, from a ‘Single Vineyard’. Years of experience have helped identify in the vineyards of Ulmo, the ideal place for the cultivation of this ancient French variety, planted in 1987 on the banks of Lake Arancio.

Tasting Notes

A densely ruby colored Merlot. It's uniqueness emerges in a particular way with a diverse but lively structure of tannins, with a strong and intensely savory taste. This version is rich with the sweet juice of black currant and candied violet which alternates with thyme and lavender. It is a multi-faceted and intriguing red wine which combines the pleasure of tannin with an extraordinary persistence of taste.

Food Pairing

Although it can so easily be drunk on its own, its elegance renders it appropriate with white meat even when cooked with a sauce of considerable flavor, or else with some delicate fish cooked without lemon or even with baked vegetables.
