Planeta Santa Cecilia '09 Bottling Note
Using 100% Nero D'avola grapes from Noto, Sicily, the Planeta Santa Cecilia is an elegant but powerfully flavoursome red wine. Noto is the birthplace for Nero D'avola grapes, so Planeta used grapes from this southern Sicilian city to ensure authenticity of flavour and spirit for their Santa Cecilia. The wine matures for 14 months in oak casks before bottling. The 2009 vintage features an inviting nose of plum, citrus, aromatic herbs and a hint of minerality, all of which continue on the palate.
