Planeta Nero d'Avola Plumbago 2020

Plumbago – named after the beautiful purple wildflower that grows in the woods surrounding the farmhouse and vineyards of Ulmo – is a single-variety Nero d’Avola. It is produced from the old vineyard at Lake Arancio, giving us this soft fruity version of this great Sicilian grape variety. Rounded tannins and perfectly judged wood make it an immediately pleasurable wine. Ideal for Mediterranean cooking based on vegetables and all types of meat.

Colour

Deep purple.

Bouquet

Plumbago is dominated by aromas of ripe plums and wild blackberries and has pleasantly complex aromatic hints of incense, jasmine and black truffle.

Flavour

The tannin texture is varied and combines its soft, sweet and seductive aspects with the harder, more direct and austere elements of a block of Modica chocolate.

Pairing

It is perfect for matching grilled meat with its affinity for smokey tones and its natural sweetness that goes with any sauce.
