Planeta

The estate is located in the municipality of Sambuca di Sicilia on Lake Arancio in the province of Agrigento in the south of Sicily, It was founded in 1995. The owners are the cousins Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, who, with the help of the oenologist Carlo Corino, turned the old family estate into a top Italian company with the latest cellar technology within a few years. The vineyards cover around 350 hectares of vineyards in the most important Sicilian wine-growing regions. These are planted with indigenous and international grape varieties.
