Planeta Alastro 2017

Pale straw with hints of green reflections.This is an austere and polite wine with aromas of ripe white melon and white peach Etna, followed by sweet, almost white chocolate and meringue flavours and hints of minerality. The palate is thin and unexpectedly soft. A nice acidity enhances the freshness. Floral notes on the finish.

Planeta Alastro 2017

The Sicilia Bianco Alastro Planeta was founded in Ulmo vineyards and Gurra, located in the municipality of Sambuca di Sicilia, in the province of Agrigento. This wine takes its name from a wild bush in spring filled with yellow flowers valleys around Lake Arancio. It is produced mainly with Grecanico grapes and with Grillo and Sauvignon Blanc, only harvested by hand. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 15 ° C for about 12 days. Then the wine is aged on the lees for six months before being bottled. The Alastro is characterized by a pale yellow color with greenish hues. The nose opens with aromas of ripe white melon and white peach of Etna, enriched with pleasant sweet notes of white chocolate and meringue. The palate is fine, fresh and pleasantly soft. The wine has an end with a return of delicate floral notes. Perfect to accompany the first Mediterranean dishes and vegetarian cuisine, it is ideal in combination with dishes based on fish and shellfish.

That white is perfect for special occasions.
The colour was rather dark golden yellow, it seemed almost white. It has aromas of white flowers. This white is lasting, it has a long aftertaste.
I had it with cod and potatoes.

It was part of a corporate gift.
Typical opacity of a Planeta. Notes of white fruits such as apples. The truth is that I couldn't find any particular flavour, although I liked it.
We paired the Planeta Alastro with a starter.
