La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround our Ulmo vineyard. This young fresh wine principally produced from Nero d’Avola grapes, flagship of Sicilian wine, gains its personality and style with the addition of some international grapes. All the vines are knowledgeably cultivated in vineyards owned by Planeta. La Segreta is a versatile companion for daily drinking, suitable for many different occasions. It is a perfect approach to Sicilian wine with its excellent relationship between price and quality, guaranteed by Planeta’s careful input from vine to wine.
Colour: a fine intense and transparent ruby red coloured wine.
Nose: from the eyes to the nose the colour transforms into aromas of currants and mulberries with a measured and tenuous minty finish.
Palate: from the aromas to the taste, in the mouth the wine shows its essential character being so drinkable prompted by vibrant sensations of ripe wild fruits which present a thirst quenching juiciness. The tannins are very gentle, yeasty and smooth giving this red wine a very versatile character.
Food pairing: for daily drinking matched with light meat dishes, vegetables and also with lightly cooked fish dishes.
Serving temperature: 16-18 °C.
