Nocera Planeta 2019

The Nocera by Planeta is an enveloping and tasty red wine produced in the territory of Messina. Refined in steel, it reveals an olfactory range of Mediterranean scrub, accents of small dark fruits, myrtle and marine memories, embroidered on a soft and intense body, with a pleasant tannic texture and animated by a synergistic shoulder of freshness and flavor

To enjoy it at its best

Serving temp.
16°-18°C
Glass
Medium open goblet
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
