2011 Planeta La Segreta Bianco, IGT Sicilia
£9.25, 12.5%, Noel Young Wines
An unusual Sicilian blend of mostly Grecancio with 30% Chardonnay, and 10% each of Fiano and Viognier, this confirms Planeta's status as one of the most innovative producers on the island. It's aromatic and winningly tropical, with hints of pineaapple and guava, zesty, pear and apple acidity and a fresh, dry, unoaked finish. The whole is greater than the sum of the wine's parts.
