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.
