Review

From the most representative black grape variety of the entire Sicilian wine panorama comes Plumbago, 100% Nero d'Avola from the vineyards of the Ulmo estate in Sambuca di Sicilia. Once in the glass it has an intense ruby red colour with some violet reflections. The bouquet is of fruits and flowers, even emanating balsamic notes. Prunes, red fruits, ripe mulberries, violets, aromatic herbs and cocoa, tobacco, leather and nutmeg stand out. In the mouth it is full of flavour, juicy and fruity; an agile, fresh wine, with good softness and a fine tannic texture, closing on a light almond note. Very pleasant, immediate and tasty. It adorns the table and enhances dishes of the first spring lunch outdoors, excellent with pasta alla Norma and grilled pork ribs.

Bien equilibre

Un Nero d'avola typé mai bien euilibré, pas trop puissant , plus subtil que la moyenne

Un buon vino

Compro spesso questo vino, da parecchi anni ormai. Mi piace il sapore contenuto ma comunque aromatico, a mio avviso accompagna benissimo diversi tipi di pietanze

Smooth and fruity memories of Sicily

Full flavoured lovely accompaniment to an Italian inspired lunch. Planeta delivers once again - a fruity and full Nero d’Avola.
