PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From the name of a wild flower that grows around our cellar, it is a blend based on
Grecanico, combined with a smaller percentage of a distinctly aromatic variety: Sauvignon
Blanc. Delicately structured, it is a great Planeta classic, in production since the first
harvest, in 1995.

SOIL TYPE: medium texture soil, from
medium deep to deep with one
abundant skeleton made up of pebbles,
medium calcareous with fractions of dark soils
and vegetables.

CULTIVATION METHOD: according to the criteria
of organic farming and the SOStain® protocol;
grassed soils with clover, vetch, yellow mustard and
spontaneous flora to increase the organic substance and the nitrogen content, favoring the
vitality of soil microfauna; phytosanitary defense with sulfur and copper in quantities
minimal; fight against pests with beneficial insects, sexual confusion and application of natural tonics such as zeolite, kaolin and plant extracts.

HARVEST PERIOD: Grecanico 25-28
September; Sauvignon Blanc 30-31 August

VINIFICATION: the grapes were harvested by hand,
– Grecanico in 18 kg boxes, Sauvignon
Blanc in 14kg crates – immediately transferred to cellar and refrigerated at approx
12-14°C. Subsequently they were destemmed,
crushed and passed through a soft and rapid pressing; the
must obtained remained at 3-5 °C for 4/5 days;
subsequently the clear part was decanted and fermented at about 14° for 18-20 days. At the end of the fermentation in 103/235 hl stainless steel tanks, after about 10 days, the wine was further decanted, leaving it on the finer lees with weekly agitation and it was finally bottled.

ORGANOLEPTIC NOTES: The Grecanico in this vintage gave its best through
an exceptional balance between strength and elegance.
On the nose the mineral and floral notes are perfectly integrated with each other, they stand out
aromas of cedar, melon, pears and white flowers
wild, boxwood. In the mouth it is vibrant, but creamy
and silky with notes of white peach.

WINE PAIRING: The contrast between flavor and sweetness
it gives it a gastronomic strength that makes it suitable for pairings with simple dishes such as a warm seafood salad as well as more complex dishes such as a spicy Asian dish in sweet and sour sauce.
It goes well with first courses of Mediterranean cuisine and with vegetarian cuisine.

AGING: steel.
