Planeta 2020 Plumbago Nero d'Avola 750ml
The single-variety Nero d’Avola named Plumbago is called after the beautiful violet-coloured wild flower which grows in the woods surrounding the baglio and the vineyards of Ulmo. It is produced from the old vineyard around the Lago Arancio, which presents a soft and fruity version of this great Sicilian variety. Rounded tannins and perfectly adjusted wood make this an immediately pleasurable wine.
A saturated purple-mauve that you look forward to drinking. Plumbago is dominated by aromas of ripe plums and wild blackberries and has pleasantly complex aromatic hints of incense, jasmine and black truffle. The tannin texture is varied and combines its soft, sweet and seductive aspects, like a Sacher torta, with the harder, more direct and austere elements of a block of Modica chocolate.
