Planeta La Segreta Bianco 2008
On the nose a lively, aromatic bouquet combining mineral scents with classic aromas of green citrus fruit, lime, peach and white melon.
Fresh, supple and round on the palate, with good balance between fruit flavors and crisp acidity.
Grecanico and Chardonnay (with other grapes) are blended here to shape the ultimate wine to pair with Mediterranean seafood dishes. Think spaghetti con vongole or fried calamari. Buttery notes of peach and apricot mix well with crisp mineral elements.
The 2008 La Segreta Bianco is generous and layered in its ripe apricots and peaches. There is a slightly candied, perfumed quality to the fruit that is quite attractive as this beautifully balanced Sicilian white opens up. La Segreta is 50% Grecanico, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Viognier and 10% Fiano. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
This tasty white offers apple, citrus fruits and a hint of lychee. Medium-bodied, with a fruity palate and a clean, crisp finish. Drink now
