Fine Wine Fridays: Planeta – La Segrata Rosso

Next time you’re in for dinner and feeling a little adventurous, try La Segrata Rosso from Planeta Vineyard – One of our favourites.

If you are typically a Shiraz drinker, you’ll fall in love with the plum and pepper flavours in this approachable Sicilian red. A blend of Nero d’Avola, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc, it pairs easily with most anything!

From Planeta, here are the tasting notes:

Colour – Ruby red with clear purple tones.

Nose – Explosive aromas of cocoa, tobacco and fresh fruit. Mulberry, plum and slightly minty hints of balsam are apparent.

Palate – Well ripened tannins without astringency are the foundation with a fresh alcoholic structure and well balanced tannin content.
