For five centuries and seventeen generations, the Planeta family has been involved in the Sicilian agricultural sector. Their work on the island has contributed to the revitalization of Sicilian winemaking, now one of the most dynamic and sought-after viticultural regions in the world. 

Named after a wildflower that grows around the winery, Alastro is a blend mainly of Grecanico with a small percentage of a distinctly aromatic variety, Sauvignon Blanc. The transparent straw color is, in this case, misleading as Grecanico hides its strength and complex character within this white wine. Grecanico has a surprising aging capacity, with an ability to drink at once or to age for 4-5 years. The Alastro is splendidly aromatic and delicately structured, with aromas of tropical fruit, fresh citrus and white flowers.

Tasting Notes

On the nose the mineral and floral notes are perfectly integrated with each other, aromas of cedar, melon, pears and wild white flowers, boxwood. Vibrant, but creamy and silky on the palate, with a white peach note.

Food Pairing 

The contrast between savory and sweetness confers a gastronomic strength that makes it suitable for matching with simple dishes such as a warm seafood salad as well as with more complex ones, like a spicy Asian dish with sweet sour sauce. It can be matched with appetizers of Mediterranean cooking and with vegetarian cookery.
