The Cerasuolo di Vittoria D.O.C.G. of the winery Planeta comes directly from the Sicilian countryside and lands in the ranking of the 100 best wines 2019 according to Wine Spectator..
What distinguishes this wine between the mountains and the sea is the composition of the soil: red sand on the surface and calcareous tuff in the depths. From the red colour of the soil comes the wine, Cerasuolo. "Cerasa" means "cherry" in Sicilian. Another important feature of the terroir is the presence of Mediterranean scrub with which the vineyards are mixed.
The Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria 2017 has succeeded in being considered one of the best wines in the world thanks to its balance and freshness, as well as its juicy notes of strawberries, raspberries, dried thyme and orange peel. Spicy and mineral, it is a wine that best represents the island from which it comes.
