About the Wine

This style of winemaking is said to date back to the Greek occupation of the island. Sicily may be most well known for its massive volcano and decadent pizzas, but these wines are really starting to develop a reputation of their own. It’s time to prepare your favorite hearty pasta and pair it with this Sicilian masterpiece. Are you ready for a meal filled with gastronomic ecstasy? 

The family history of this Sicilian Estate goes back for more than 5 centuries, where in such a closed and traditional culture, the Planeta family is not afraid to innovate and modernize. Diego Planeta along with other top-notch wine consultants from Italy like Giacomo Tachis, Carlo Corino, Giampaolo Fabris, and Attilio Scienza, have managed to position Planeta as the reference point in Sicilian and Italian winemaking.Discover what makes Planeta one of Sicily's leading producers!

Planeta is one of the most iconic, and well known producers in Sicily. Fun fact? The winery was even featured in the critically acclaimed TV Show The White Lotus.

Alessio Planeta, head of Planeta, has been named "Winemaker of the Year" worldwide by the prestigious Wine Enthusiast magazine through their "Wine Star Awards" in 2023. 

Their vineyards are distributed throughout 5 different regions around Sicily: Menfi, Etna, Vittoria, Noto, and Capo Milazzo, resulting in an incredibly interesting wine portfolio: Different soils, different climates, different grapes, different (and incredible) wines! And if that wasn't enough, the family also owns a hotel and a restaurant in Menfi and Palermo.

For Planeta, sustainability is of the utmost importance, winemaking practices and viticulture are done in accordance with the environment and society. Baronia is considered a symbol of the sustainable viticulture of Planeta’s Winery.

Tasting Notes: 100% Frappato. This is a rare and exclusive variety cultivated according to the criteria of sustainability and organicity, in only a few hectares in the whole of Sicily, which reaches its ultimate expression in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasing red wine as are few others, the perfect synthesis between tradition and new trends.


This wine's brilliant garnet color in the glass is matched by its bright and sunny notes of red fruit—cherries, strawberries and raspberries. A slight earthiness expands on those aromas, with tomato and red pepper accents that are all repeated on the palate. Punchy astringency comes from soil notes and tannins. ~91 Wine Enthusiast
