Planeta Santa Cecilia 2008

Planeta Santa Cecilia 750ML 2008      
Sku: 16432

Noto, Sicily, Italy

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Feb 2013)
The 2008 Nero d?Avola Santa Cecilia shows the richer side of Nero d?Avola typical of Noto. Sweet cherries, plums, flowers, mint and spices flesh out in the glass. Expressive perfumed notes run through the wine, adding an element of lift that is highly appealing. Rich, textured and impeccably balanced, the 2008 is another solid wine from Planeta. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed; extraction on skins followed by 12 days of maceration. After fermenting in stainless steel tanks, the wine is matured for 12 months in two- and three-year-old French oak barrels.

Technical notes
13.8% abv

Food pairing
Wonderful with all meat-based and southern Italian dishes, as well as mushroom dishes and smoked ham.
