Planeta NV Brut Metodo Classico Sparkling Wine is pale yellow in colour with shades of sea green. Shows distinct aromas of "muscaredda", a variety of white prickly pear, white flowers and green grass. Vibrant and lean on the palate. Mt. Etna in full eruption. The Carricante vines which are the main grapes in this remarkable sparkling wine are planted at an altitude of 720 metres above sea level. The grapes are harvested early in crates to preserve their acidity. They are then crushed and destemmed and sent off for soft pressing. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeast. It is left to ferment at 15°C for 15 days in a dedicated room.
