Glass

Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion

RED WINE NERO D'AVOLA 'PLUMBAGO' PLANETA 2019 DESCRIPTION

Once again Planeta captures the best fruits of the old vines of Ulmo, playing with one of the most characteristic varieties planted in Sicily. In the woods around the historic estate overlooking Lago Arancio grows a spontaneous flower marked by vibrant violet hues, which forms brightly colored spots among the rows of vines: Plumbago borrowed the name of this flower, just for the similar colors that it shows when it slides in the glass. A wise handling of wood inputs, balanced in the aromatic context, and an intelligent enhancement of grape tannins, make this Nero d'Avola a loyal companion of Mediterranean flavors, but also a fierce thoroughbred to be enjoyed by itself.

Colour Deep red with violet hues

Scent Scents of red fruit, hints of cocoa, delicate wood notes

Taste Great roundness with velvety tannins and a long ending
