Tasting Notes: Rosé wine. Fresh and fruity, this wine expresses all the emotions of a Sicilian summer. Its color is that of a summer sunset. The fresh aromas of strawberry make it a marvelously friendly wine, and easy to drink. Lively and fresh in the mouth, the wine has reflections of meringue, and recollects the taste of white peaches.

Enjoy Planeta’s Rosé in good company, as an aperitif with tapas, raw fish, fresh salads or alone with seasonal fruit.

Blend: 50% Nero d'Avola, 50% Syrah

Reviews

The slight reduction adds another dimension to the loquat and citrus on offer. Medium-bodied and tangy on the bright palate, which showcases attractive acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now. Screw cap. ~90 James Suckling
