"If you’re looking for a crisp summer sparkler to encourage the balmier days ahead, look no further than this delicious new wine from Planeta. This Sicilian producer has brought us this Brut Metodo Classico just in time for the warmer weather (we hope) ... Pair it with fresh seafood dishes and cheese."
Italia Magazine, April 2013

 TASTING NOTE

Pale yellow in colour with shades of sea green.
Shows distinct aromas of "muscaredda", a variety of white prickly pear, white flowers and green grass. Vibrant and lean on the palate. Mt. Etna in full eruption.

For an aperitif or an entire meal, this Brut is an extremely versatile Classic Method wine that enhances the freshness and aroma of dishes with its tangy touch.

This unusual wine was, until quite recently, a contender for most exclusive listing in the world. Originally an experiment conducted by Alessio Planeta whilst waiting for his Carricante vines on Etna to mature, the wine was served only at Planeta's resort hotel in Menfi, La Foresteria. Such a hit was it with visitors that Planeta elected to extend its distribution, and we are the lucky recipients of a small parcel for the first time.
Made by the 'classical method', where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, the Carricante gives it great elegance and vibrancy. This is a really well made fizz for any occasion, and the fact it comes from Europe's most active volcano only enhances its appeal.
