Planeta Sito dell’Ulmo Merlot Sicilia IGT 2007

Merlot 100%


“The Sito dell’Ulmo” is a Merlot produced by a winery that played a key role in the revival of Sicilian wine. It’s a label that originates in Sambuca di Sicilia, within the territory of the Planeta estate in Menfi. The property extends over 400 hectares, with approximately 250 hectares dedicated to viticulture. The grapes come from the Ulmo vineyard, planted in 1987 on the shores of Lake Arancio. The vineyards are cultivated at an altitude of about 200 meters above sea level, in a natural environment rich in woods and biodiversity. The area features alluvial soils, abundant in pebbles, highly draining, and well-suited to the needs of Merlot. After the harvest, the grapes are destemmed and fermented at a temperature of 28°C, with a maceration on the skins for about two weeks. The wine matures for 14 months in Allier oak barriques, with 50% of them being new, and completes its refinement with a few months in the bottle before being released on the market.
