K&L Notes

La Segreta is named for the woods that surround Planeta's vineyard at Ulmo in Sicily. This youthful red is 100% estate-grown from primarily Nero d'Avola grapes, the cornerstone of Sicilian wine. Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc round out the blend. This bottling has become a staple of value-conscious drinkers of Italian wines with its ruby color and a bright and food-friendly profile. Aromas of cocoa and tobacco complement the wine's red berry and plum fruit with soft and balanced tannins.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
