Product Description

La Segreta takes its name from the woods which surround our vineyard at Ulmo. This young fresh wine principally produced from Grecanico grapes gains personality and style with the addition of some international variety grapes. All grapes are knowledgeably cultivated in the vineyards owned by Planeta. La Segreta is a versatile companion for everyday drinking and appropriate for many different occasions. It is the perfect approach to Sicilian wine, with its excellent relationship between quality and price, guaranteed by the Planeta family’s patient input, from vine to wine.

There is a ripe, perfumed quality to the fruit as this beautifully balanced Sicilian white opens up. La Segreta Bianco is pale gold with a light, greenish hue. It has a lively aromatic bouquet that mingles hints of lychee, pineapple, kumquat, peach blossom, and wild mint. The mouthfeel is full, dry and balanced by a persistent natural acidity typical of this blend and winemaking approach. The wine is smooth and supple with a satisfying aftertaste of mint, and a long finish.
