Planeta – Alastro
After then must was poured out at a low temperature and fermented at 15⁰C and matured in stainless steel vats for six months.
This light smooth wine presents a straw color body and suggests the aromas of rich citrus, peach, tropical fruits and yellow flours such as broom which came from the Grillo and Sauvignon blend.
The melon taste of Alastro wine makes it more reasonable and encouraging to more wine drinkers and to continuously patronize it all along.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
