SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

Etna Bianco Euzione 1614 by Planeta, a young winery which, since 1995, has quickly positioned itself among the leading enterprises in Sicily, is made on the slopes and lava soils of Mount Etna. ‘1614’ commemorates the date of Mount Etna’s longest eruption, which lasted almost 10 years, with the lava flow stopping right here in the district of Sciaranuova. The relics of this past can be seen today in the historic dwellings which have been restored by Azienda Planeta with complete respect for the pedoclimatic environment. The estate is located on the northern slope of Etna. This dark territory is rich in the remains of diverse lava flows along with ash and organic matter which enrich the soil. The land reaches 800 metres above sea level, giving the wine added freshness and minerality on the palate. Once harvested, the grapes are refrigerated at 8 degrees Celsius and are then pressed. They remain in stainless steel tanks on the lees until the March of the following year. Eruzione 1614 is a charismatic blend: it is produced from 90% Carricante grapes with a hint of the Riesling variety (10%). To the eye, this wine is a deceptively soft yellow, with its full complexity opening on the nose and then on the palate: A trip to Etna! A burst of freshness! Combined with notes of citrus, chamomile, broom, and green apple, accompanied with the minerality which characterises this territory. This white wine is ideal for enjoying with freshly caught fish and raw shellfish, and perfect with an aperitif or to accompany a seafood pasta dish enjoyed with friends. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Planeta

The Planeta winery has been producing wines for generations. The family's tradition and passion has been passed down for decades, and is still the main engine that connects each stage of processing. The company boasts six different estates located in six different parts of Sicily, each of which is committed to creating Sicilian wines of the highest quality. The Ulmo estate is located in Sambuca di Sicilia, while the processing of the Dispensa estate takes place in Menfi. The Dorilli winery is located in Vittoria, while Buonivini operates in Noto. Feudo di Mezzo stands out against Etna, in Castiglione di Sicilia, while the work of La Baronia remains in the Capo Milazzo area. A very diverse production, therefore, capable of creating multi-faceted wines. The total area of vineyards exceeds three hundred hectares, all of which are raised with the utmost care and with full respect for the differences of individual territories. This is a long and thorough work, requiring precision and great knowledge of the raw material and soil characteristics. Not only that, it requires inordinate passion, which you can find in every glass of wine produced. Name and address of producer/distributor: Planeta - Contrada Dispensa, 92013 Menfi (AG). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
