A good rule of thumb for anyone who appreciates an interesting red – when you see Planeta, buy it. The family has been involved in Sicilian agriculture for five centuries and seventeen generations – to say they understand the value of their terroir would be an understatement. Etna is a smoky and intense wine with brilliantly expressive fruit and complex aromatic elements that elevate this champion of drinkability to heights that will reset your bar for a weeknight red.
Very smoky and intense with cherries, berries and some orange peel and ash. It’s full-bodied, but not overbearing, with lovely fruit and citrus character at the finish. Drinkable now, but better in a year or two.
