Arising from the desire to minimise environmental impact, the invisible winery is the symbol of Planeta's presence in the territory of Noto. The project, finalised in 2003, is still completely innovative and the expression of a perfect synthesis between respect for the territory, technical requirements and architectural design.

The aspect of the soft hills of Buonivini, the white limestone soil, and the breezes arising from the meeting of two seas, create the best conditions to make the vines grow successfully and give rise to great wines. Here Nero d’Avola and Moscato grow together with almonds, carobs and olives, symbolic plants of the Mediterranean location.

Controdanza, from “country dance”, is a traditional rural dance where partners move gracefully together and then in opposition to each other. Thus we imagined an association of Nero d’Avola and a small amount of Merlot, both cultivated in Noto’s white soil. An unconventional combination, balanced between harmony and contrast.

Tasting Notes

Typical notes of Nero d’Avola from the Noto area like mulberry and plum together with bay, incense and balsamic notes being balanced and made lively by the addition of a vibrant Merlot produced on the same calcareous soils. Harmonic acidity and soft tannins characterise the palate.

Food Pairing

From pork to lamb, this wine expresses its best with all grilled meats. To be tried with a traditional recipe such as ‘salsiccia sul coppo’ or in a playful pairing with sweet and sour sauces.
